Monte Tondo

Monte Tondo is a family estate located in the beautiful hillside vineyards of Soave. Here the soils range from volcanic to chalky, which alongside the varying microclimates, gives the wines distinct 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. No chemicals are used in their production and they recycle everything excess coming from the vineyard (stems as fertilizers, skins for grappa, pruned branches for heating and fertilizer).

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 with the ability to produce complex wines with age-ability.

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.

Producer Fact SheetDetails

(Soave Classico 2018) "there’s a lovely interplay between rounded texture, stone-fruited richness and herb-and-nut bitterness in Monte Tondo’s Soave Classico" David Williams, The Guardian (November 2019) 

(Foscarin Slavinus 2018) "The Superiore Slavinus is picked in two stages: First in mid-October, then at the end of November to add richness and complexity of late-harvested fruit. Fermented in large barrels but then aged in vats, the 2018 has a lovely fresh citrus nose with a hint of saltiness, and a palate with succulent yellow fruit, dynamic progression and a long, minerally finish." 96 points, Richard Baudains, Decanter (June 2021)
