About This Wine:
We always say that this wine "is like a bit of earth in a glass." And it's true. In the Monte Carbonare vineyard the vines sink their roots deep down into the black earth; pure volcano. This gives the wine personality: forthright and truthful, with a sharp mineral nature. It tastes of rain on flint, on the black stones of the dry walls, and of that good fragrance that the countryside releases when dampened by the first rain.

Ratings & Reviews


96 Points - Decanter Magazine:
"The Tessari sisters make wines which are the magisterial expression of the high vineyards and volcanic soils of Monte Carbonare, untrammelled by oak, malolactic fermentation or selected yeast aromas. Concentrated and initially a little closed, they need time to open but they reward patience with sensations of rapier-like intensity. The 2018 has a delicately smoky, mineral nose and a bone-dry palate of great length and depth, with a classic almondy finish." -RB (Nov 2020)

95 Points - James Suckling:
"Beautiful, glistening yellow-gold color, then enticing aromas of ripe lemons and baked apples with hints of peaches, flowers and wet stones. Tinge of fresh ginger, too. Round and silky palate that's full of bright flavor. Long, intense finish. Super Soave. 100% garganega. Drink now." - (26 Nov, 2020

92 Points & #70 Top 100 of 2020 - Wine Spectator Magazine (2017 Vintage):
"Svelte and finely knit, this vivid white is driven by both its minerally underpinning and its rapierlike acidic frame, components well-meshed with the pleasing range of pink grapefruit sorbet, nectarine and grated ginger notes, plus a touch of almond skin that imparts a light, tactile sensation to the racy finish. Drink now through 2027. 3,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported." - AN
