Like a sculptor
The winemaker isn’t like a painter who draws on a white sheet of paper using brushes and tempera colors. He is more like a sculptor who has in front of a block of marble and knows that inside that stone there is already a work of art. An artwork that only needs to be liberated.
This is Gianni Tessari way seeing things. Thanks to an expertise developed by working with different kinds of territories and styles he has acquired the capacity of listening to the terroir. Recognizing the signals, grasping their potential, pinpointing the high road to give an enological expression to a territory.
work of art to be free
The interpretation begins with the main choice: what kind of variety to bed out on a soil and with which farming system. Then it carries on with the choice of prunings, yields, the point of maturation one wishes for. Everything must be functional for the winemaker’s enological goal and that will then guide every choice.
In Gianni Tessari’s vision the wine is already there, well before the plant grows any roots. With his expertise and his insight he orientates every choice carried out in the vineyard and in the winery, so that the result is the most natural and fitting for the terroir.
The only way that Gianni knows is to pick up the soil, touch it, listen to it. Draw out what it has inside.
