Monte Tondo Soave Classico Superiore Foscarin Slavinus 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This smells of machine oil and butcher’s wax, sweet ripe fruit peaches, pressed flowers, banana peel (or maybe more plantain). Lightly nutty and super complex on the nose. Gorgeously balanced with rich fruit, brassy acids, precise succulent flavors of peach, almond skin, mineral and dried apricot. This finishes with real richness and an almost sweet note before settling into a long, dried apricot-laced and mineral finish. Atypical, but impressive. Wow, really balanced and complex. 92pts

Monte Tondo:
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 born from a love for their land and their roots together with the knowledge that it is only through hard work, drive and determination that the best results can be obtained.

Sweet, peachy fragrance greets the nose. Creamy, almost tongue-coating richness on the finish.

This wine was really clean and crisp. These Soave wines are very overlooked. Good value and nice change from a Chardonnay

Creamy and complex - love the slight nutty finish paired with the soft fruit
