  4. Soave Classico DOC

Suavia Soave Classico is composed of 100% Garganega grapes harvested from the Tessari family's 12 hectare estate located in the historic heart of the Soave appellation.  Suavia’s Soave Classico is vinified only in stainless steel tanks with several months’ lees contact before bottling. The resulting wine has a clarity of expression and regional typicity that speaks to the Tessari family's philosophy of careful selection, low yields and incredible attention to detail in the winemaking process.

Tasting Notes

Suavia Soave Classico appears bright and lemon-yellow.  Fresh aromas of apple, pear and almond balance clean minerality and a hint of fresh herb.  Crisp and refreshing on the palate, the flavors and aromas build toward a harmonious and lingering finish.

Food Pairing

Ideal as an aperitif, Suavia Soave Classico matches well with a wide array of dishes, from hors d'oeuvres and fresh fish to white meats and young cheeses.  It is equally well-suited to summer nights in the back yard with friends or family.
