The Tessari family bleeds Garganega. For three generations they have been extracting delectable wine from the well cared vines of their Monteforte d’Alpone vineyards, in the prestigious area of Soave Classico. 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. "Arcerus", has an energetic straw yellow colour with fine bubbles. The characteristic intense aroma of apple, elderberry and chamomile are bewitching. Fresh and persistent on the palate, with a delightful aftertaste of bitter almonds and a playful mineral sparkle. "Arcerus" is excellent as aperitif and finger food, main courses and fish.
