iStefanini

Country:

Italy

Veneto

Region:

iStefanini covers 20 hectares of fertile growing volcanic soil in the cool-climate region of Valle d’Alpone, a Verona river valley rich in fossil deposits on the east end of Soave. Head winemaker and owner Francesco Tessari works with his father, vineyard manager Valentino Tessari. Presently, the techniques of cultivating the vines while respecting the land and exalting the quality of the product encompass the current agronomic methodology.
The Stefanini wines, in accordance with traditional winemaking techniques of Soave, are not aged in oak barrels, but in lined tanks made of stainless steel.
Francesco Tessari is one of the only few producers who has launched the concept of a high-quality Soave wine, capable of offering a rich fleshiness without losing its drinkability or fragrance. He effectively controls yields in the vineyard, even for his simplest wines, which is coupled with an intermittent search for maturity, which allows for the production of only the most ambitious labels of the highest quality vintage.
