Tre Colli means “Three Hills”, where Tessari’s estate is placed. Before the harvest the best grapes are personally and exclusively selected by the family members, to make them dry naturally until February. Tessari’s sweet wine, Tre Colli, is a hedonist’s dream. The color of Black Locust honey, bright and sunny, lightly clings to the glass. The nose is fragrant honey, dried fruit, raisins, summer white flowers and tiny amount of custard. Just the right amount of sweetness vs. dryness; very elegant. A nostalgic taste of almond at the end makes the whole adventure most pleasurable.
