Monte Tondo, Valpolicella D.O.C.


Tasting Notes: Located directly between Lago di Garda and Venezia, Monte Tondo is making some of the most exciting, vibrant wines in all of Veneto. This Valpolicella is a great example; somewhere between a Ripasso and a basic Valpolicella Classico. The grapes are dried for about a month in a well ventilated “fruttai” before pressing, and ultimately aged for five months in oak. Not a frivolous wine, it packs loads of sour black cherry aromas, spices, violets, and roses.
