“Grisela” has always been the nickname of the Tessari family: a sincere dedication to our history and our traditions rooted in time, essential values that characterize the wines of our production.
The peculiarity of Grisela lies in its production path and respect for the territory: a well-balanced wine, from 100% Garganega grapes, which draws its typicality from the hilly vineyards of the Soave Classico area of Monteforte d’Alpone.
The hand-picked grapes in plastic crates are de-stemmed and transformed into must by soft pressing. The must is then fermented at a controlled temperature of 15 °, maintaining the utmost respect for the primary aromas of Garganega.
The long stay on the fine fermentation lees makes it possible to reduce the quantity of sulfur dioxide to be added to the wine. How? With batonnage. With this procedure, the fine lees that had deposited on the bottom of the tank are put back in suspension in the wine, thus favoring the extraction of glutathione: one of the strongest antioxidants present in nature.
We therefore obtain a more complex, persistent and harmonious wine, with a beautiful balance between aromas and taste.
A wine that respects and preserves the typicality of the production of our hills of Monteforte, the heart of the Soave Classico.
Grisela, with its brilliant straw yellow, is the backbone of the winery’s production; characterized by an intense aroma of apple and wild flowers, elderberry and chamomile, elegant and very fragrant.
Fresh on the palate, with citrus, sapid and mineral notes, dry and decisive; nice persistence that closeson a classic note of bitter almond. Admirable synthesis between pleasantness and complexity for the ability to photograph and faithfully reproduce the characteristics of the vine and the area.
Grisela is the wine for the whole meal par excellence.
You can enjoy it with the classic aperitif: imagine a summer, a terrace, the setting sun and a fresh bottle ready to be shared, what more could you want?
It goes very well with delicate risottos: with vegetables, cheeses (the classic Radicchio and Monteveronese), or with fish (risotto with salmon or seafood).
A simple pasta with pesto or tomato sauce, a spaghetti with seafood, seeing is believing!
In winter, why give up with white wine, if it’s your favorite one? Try it with vegetable or legume soups.
