Monte Tondo Monte Tondo Soave Classico is a family estate which is located in the beautiful hillside vineyards of Soave. Here the soils range from volcanic to chalky, which alongside the varying microclimates, gives the wines distinctive flavour characteristics and individualistic style. Alongside his family, winemaker Gino Magnabosco is part of the third generation to run the estate. They believe that hard work, drive and determination are key to obtaining the best results from their land. Maintaining, nourishing and cherishing the land of their ancestors is of utmost importance. And although not certified, they farm using organic practices and an environmentally friendly approach to both viticulture and vinification.
Small proportions of other varieties are allowed in the production of Soave, but Monte Tondo focuses their concentration purely on Garganega. Garganega is a variety so versatile and easily culinary matched but also has the ability to take form in complex wines, with an ability to age. Characterised by their acidity and minerality; the Soave Mito, Soave Classico and Soave Superiore ‘Foscarin Slavinus’ are all very precise. Each one boasting beautifully clean fruit flavours. Monte Tondo wines are known for their precise execution and approachability but they also produce some really interesting wines which show great depth and longevity.
Fresh and refined, this lovely wine boasts enticing scents of white spring flower, orchard fruit and a whiff of roasted herb. The bright palate offers nectarine zest, Bartlett pear and lively acidity while a mineral note closes the finish. Best Buy – Wine Spectator
