“Grisela” was Tessari’s nickname for their countryman: tradition and love for the land kept during time and still living in wines which embody the family’s character
The volcanic soils of the hillside are rich with basaltic rocks and clays, which guarantees the health of the plant and the promotion of minerality and floral aroma that is characteristic of the Garganega grape. Artisanal wine making at it’s best.
Tessari’s golden straw colored Grisela is the backbone of the vineyard; a delicious entry level wine that is meant to be enjoyed between friends. Firm, slight Melba toast, elderflower and chamomile aromatics with notable minerals. The taste of crushed seashells dance on your tongue with a fun duo of stone fruit and citrus. The finish is refreshing with balanced acidity.
Grisela is the “all meal” wine.
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 pairs very well with a delicate risotto: with vegetables, cheeses (the classic Radicchio and Monteveronese), or with fish (salmon or seafood).
A simple pasta with pesto or tomato, spaghetti with seafood, try it to believe it!
In winter, why give up on white wine if it’s your favorite? Try it with veg soup or legumes: at the same time you will care for your diet and you will have your cozy moment.
