    The Monte Tondo vineyard can be found nestling in the gentle hills of Soave just a few kilometres from Verona on a slope overlooking the valley. Today it is 4th generation brother and sister team, Luca and Marta Magnabosco, who carry on their family’s passion for the land and its wines.
    Twenty-five hectares of vineyards are situated on the best plots that the Soave zone can offer on predominately volcanic soils: Monte Tenda, Monte Foscarino and Monte Tondo. The wines produced, from 100% Garganaga, are intensely perfumed with an unmistakable Soave character somewhere between florals and fruitiness.
    Made from Garganega grapes this Soave offers great value. Brilliant pale straw colour with a distinct greenish tinge to the edges and a watery hue. Elevated ripe pear scents meld into red apple, lime, wet stone and fresh herb notes. Delicious pear, fresh apple and lime fruits have a rounded pebble stone like mouthfeel with elements of slate and infusions of fresh herbs chiming in on the back half. Finishes dry and brisk with a medium length aftertaste.
    Drink over the next 1-2 years.
