“Francesco Tessari produces fresh and fruity wines gaining top scores in all major wine guides and current reviews.”
The soils in Veneto are rocky and majorly made up of alluvial soils. The region enjoys a protection from the harsh northern European climate by its location at the foothills of the Alps. The Adriatic coastal plains and river valleys are where Valpolicella, Amarone and Bardolino reds are produced. The soils are rocky, stony, pebbly and composed with alluvial based on chalk or volcanic origins, providing ideal conditions for growing the local grapes.
A Passionate Lineage
I Stefanini is a family business owned by winemaker Francesco Tessari. With his father, they apply in their vineyards the techniques of cultivating the vines while respecting the land. They also think that exalting the quality of the product encompass the current agronomic methodology. Francesco Tessari believes in the concept of a high quality Soave wine, capable of offering a rich fleshiness without losing its drinkability or fragrance. In order to achieve this goal, he lowers yields in the vineyard, even for his simplest wines, which is coupled with an intermittent search for perfect maturity.
