  4. Monte Carbonare Soave Classico DOC

Monte Carbonare is the name of the hill upon which the vineyard that sources this wine is situated. The word Carbonare refers to coal and is used to describe this location because the volcanic soils here are black as coal.   Produced from 100% Garganega and exposed only to stainless steel in order to preserve freshness, the Tessari family describes this wine as “earth in a glass”—a pure expression of their volcanic terroir.

Tasting Notes

Straw yellow with considerable intensity and brilliant highlights. This wine is creamy and elegant.  It is characterized by freshness and aromas of citrus, herbs, and mineral.  On the palate the wine is well-balanced and refreshing with a dry and persistent finish.

Food Pairing

Best served with delicate fish-based dishes, truffle or mushroom risottos, and medium flavored cheeses as well as a variety of vegetarian dishes.
