Read about this winery HERE
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. Three generations have handed down the precious art of wine-making.
The design of wine cellars, with arches and terracotta bricks, captures the rural style of country villages and is evident in the close ties of old-fashioned flavours that the vineyard has established between its wines and the hills that inspired not only Dante’s poetry but also other famous authors of Italian literature.
DOC Soave. Deep and well ventilated soil suitable for producing fresher wines. Grape variety is the Garganega. In the fertile flatlands outside the Soave Classico zone, the grape produces high yields. The acid levels in Garganega lends itself well to the production of sweet wines that have the potential to improve int he bottle for a decade or more.
The Novellino is straw-colored with green highlights, intense scent, dry taste and fresh. Serve chilled.
