Gianni Tessari is a reference name in the Veronese wine scene: a winemaker with an authoritative professional path. Since the 1980s, in fact, it has put its signature on several successful wines, recognized with world-class awards. In 2013 Gianni began a journey with the Marcato company that today bears his name, Giannitessari. Its success finds maximum expression with the vinification of durella grapes, a native Veronese grape that has courageously chosen to elevate from rustic variety to fine and excellent wine
“A wine developed in detail, sculpted with devotion and care in the pursuit of the perfect balance. It expects from the enologist the same mastery of a sculptor as scrupulous as talented and creative: his majesty the Pinot Noir is demanding, though, in the end, it gives back as much. Its aromas and flavors bring out an elegance that few other wines can boast. A refinement which materializes in the cherry red, moulded in the rich ‘minerality’ of the grapes. The work of research and modeling is intense: the result is a work of art”.
The fruit is grown in Roncà, Verona, Alpone Valley, and handpicked in cases, then aged after fermentation in 4,000 litre oak barrels for 6 months.
Deep ruby colour with dark cherry on the nose. Quite rich and silky on the palate, with a fine fresh and lightly tannic finish.
Fab with smoked pulled pork rolls, bacon & sausage sandwich, smoky bacon crisps or mushroom and smoked tofu stir-fried brown rice
