La Tonda

Toscana I.G.T.


L a 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.
In La Tonda the varietal notes of cherries, plums and red fruit are accompanied by a variety of delicate spices, such as nutmeg, white and pink pepper refined by spring-like hints of rose petals and violets.
