Monte Tondo, Soave Classico D.O.C.
(SWAH-vay KLAH-see-ko)

 

Tasting Notes: What Gino Magnabosco and his daughter, Marta, are doing with the Garganega grape is nothing short of amazing. Winners of a Tre Bicchieri award, Monte Tondo is a true family affair that is on the cutting edge of white winemaking in Italia. This Soave is bristling and clean, flinty and fragrant, with terrific notes of granite, citrus, green apple, and ripe mango. A truly wonderful wine.
