La Tonda, which in Italian means “the round one”, was planted in 1990 as an experiment on vine-training and plant density effects. Since 2014 La Tonda is vinified separately to produce a single vineyard 100% Sangiovese wine. Every year a limited amount of bottles is produced for exclusive sale at our Capezzine farm.
The fruitiness of ripe Sangiovese gratifies your sense of smell. On the nose, hints of rose and violet petals intertwine with the more intense ones of strawberry and plum jam with balsamic nuances in the background. In the mouth the start is enveloping and warm. The tannin touches the palate with elegance and supports the sweet and opulent drinkability.
The sediments you might find in this wine show that it is made of pure Sangiovese with minimal intervention. The deposit is due to its high content of a natural antioxidant called quercetin, which is perfectly safe. This is not a flaw, it is a characteristic of the pure Sangiovese.
