Producer Info

Born in Monforte d’Alpone in 1963, Gianni Tessari started working in the family vineyards at a very young age, going on to study enology. With his brother he brought great success to the family winery, Cantine Tessari. In 2013, he left the family business to start on his own and now has 55 hectares of vineyards.

Regional Info

Venezia is the Italian name for the city of Venice (and the province in which it is located). It is also of the wine DOC the area was granted in December 2010. Wines labelled as DOC Venezia appeared on shelves as of the 2011 vintage, and indicated a thoroughly modern, varietal-led appellation, well-tuned to the demands of the modern wine consumer. This applies to the DOC’s direction as well as its potential output: it covers both the Venezia and Treviso provinces in their entirety. Venezia is by far the largest DOC in Veneto, and in northern eastern Italy as a whole. The effect this has on the eventual quality of Venezia wines remains to be seen. As is increasingly the case with Italian DOCs, particularly newer ones and those located in the northern half of the peninsula, Venezia goes beyond the traditional red and white (rosso and bianco) wines. It still offers these standard blends, but complements them with three red varietals

(Bordeaux’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot) and two whites (northern Italy’s flagship Pinot Grigio and the ever-popular Chardonnay).

Winemakers Notes
