Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

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. Third generation Gino Magnabosco, together with his family, carry on their passion for the land, and the traditions which have handed down. Like skilled craftsmen, they carefully and conscientiously follow all the production phases: from the wine to the bottle,attentive to new improvements in grape-producing technology at all times.

Twenty-five hectares of vineyards are situated on the best plots that the Soave zone can offer: Monte Tenda, Monte Foscarino and Monte Tondo, from which the vineyard and this wine takes their name,ensure that the wine produced is intensely perfumed with an unmistakable Soave charactersomewhere between florals and fruitiness.

The cultivation of the vines is guyot style on well-drained volcanic soils, which allow the grapes, mainlyGarganega and Trebbiano of Soave, to grow to their best advantage.
