The Domain: The small, family-operated estate of Monte Tondo sets itself apart in almost every way. Contrasting the large co-ops that dominate the Soave Classico region, Monte Tondo represents the true artisanal minority: not only are their wines low yield, single estate and picked by hand, but in lieu of grapes grown in the vast alluvial flatlands, Monte Tondo’s whites hail from various crus on the hillside above the town, each complete with its own unique soil profile. These sites in turn allow Gino Magnabosco and his daughter, Marta, to create tiers of Garganega-driven whites with a remarkable array of personalities.

More recently, the Magnabosco family has branched into making red wines. Located some 90 minutes inland from Venice, Monte Tondo serves as a physical bridge between the subalpine hills of the Valpolicella region and the sprawling, sea-level fields that produce so much of Italy’s affordable white wine (i.e. Soave and Pinot Grigio). Established in 1979 by Aldo Magnabosco, the estate was expanded 20 years later by his son, Gino, and currently has 32 hectares spanning two different DOC’s: they now have 22 hectares in Soave Classico and 10 in the Valpolicella (lying on the opposite side of the same hill).

In the hills of Soave, vine-grower Gino Magnabosco, together with his family, carries on the passion that traditions have handed down. Intense aroma, dryness, and freshness are characteristics of Monte Tondo's wines that are difficult to forget. The Magnabosco family is attentive to any new improvement in grape-producing technology of Soave and Valpolicella, in order to guarantee wine of the best quality to represent the area in which it is produced.
