Monte Tondo

Monte Tondo 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.


Along side 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 up most 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 focus 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 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.

(Soave Classico 2016) "Pale straw-green with a golden tinge. Ripe but refined aromas and flavors of yellow fruits, sweet spices, and botanical herbs are all complicated by a whiff of minerals. Dense, luscious with sneaky concentration on the long, rich finish that features a hint of resin. A knockout Soave." 93 points, Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media (June 2017)
