Monte Tondo, Monte Tondo Casette Foscarin Soave
Casette Foscarin Soave DOC

 

Tasting Notes: Right now, and we don’t say this flippantly -- Monte Tondo is making the very finest Soave in Italy. This offering is a stunning example of what the Garganega grape can do in the hands of masters like Gino and Marta Magnabosco. Monte Tondo is a true family estate that cuts no corners, and they are determined to elevate Soave to a whole different level. One sip, and you will see they are doing it. With fermentation as low as 14 degrees, and yields as low as 600g per plant, this is one Italian white wine that delivers<br />extraordinary minerals, pinging clarity, and cleanliness.
