Jury statement
Can be summarized by saying that we all were totally blown away by this white wine elixir. This wine shows such perfection that it is difficult to find a counterpart in the wine world. Absolutely fabulous taste nuances of minerals in world class with yellow apples, citrus and acacia honey.

The sisters Tessari at Suavia have created wine magic by capturing the power of the ancient volcanic soil and demonstrated that the classic wine region, like Soave has so much more to offer for the future. The sisters is also extremely humble combined with modern thinking which is much admired. Just the fact, that from this classic wine region, to introduce the new interesting bottles and wine labels shows both courage, wisdom and great talent.
