Suavia is a winery currently run by the Tessari sisters and figures among the pioneers of Soave, in the province of Verona. Founded in 1982 thanks to the vision of Giovanni, whose family forebears in the world of wine date back to the 19th Century, the winery became a quality benchmark for the region right from its beginnings. The Tessari sisters, Arianna, Valentina, Meri and Alessandra, have taken on different roles in the winery's management and made the Garganega variety and the volcanic soils found locally the characteristic trademarks of their products. To achieve this they can count on their magnificent Fittà cru vineyards, located at an altitude of 300 metres with excellent sun exposure and marked differences in day and night temperatures, thus favouring good growth.
The winery contains efficient, modern installations set up for the production of white wines that feature amongst the most highly-esteemed in the world. Mineral, elegant and easy to drink wines, which express the best of this volcanic terroir with its own personality and with an interpretation of the Garganega variety that's always original.
Matured in contact with its lees, Soave Classico is a floral wine, fruit-forward and vertical. Monte Carbonare is a very select wine which has established itself with successive vintages as a great Soave,vigorous and profound, with notes of almonds and eucalyptus fusing sublimely. With Le Rive the winery has created a Garganega that combines tradition and international taste: a late-harvest wine which ages in large barrels and offers an aromatic display highlighting peach jam and an opulent, rounded and smooth palate. The winery's premium products are Recioto di Soave Acinatium, made using Garganega grapes left to dry out naturally or by special process for six months, fermented and aged in oak barrels and in contact with its lees for two years; and Massifitti, produced from Trebbiano de Soave and matured for 15 months in steel tanks and in contact with its fine lees, and undergoing a further 12 months of refinement in bottle.
