Tuscan Sun Wines

Tondo Tondo

Italian wine and food seem like a birthright: you can taste your whole life.

Tondo Tondo, I’ve thought many times, as I pushed back my chair from the table. A Tuscan feast centers on the ancient triumvirate: the vine, the olive tree, and wheat. Maybe that’s why it feels so deeply connected to the earth.  Tondo tondo, a dialect expression, signifies Just Perfect, what you say over and over.

Vinification: Aged in vats of stainless steel with fermentation temperature control system 28-30'C. Maceration period is 12-15 days, with four daily pumpings and manual punching to increase the release of substances from the skins. In the final stage maceration, the vats are filled, and malolactic is perfectly performed. 2011 Italian Red Wine 100% Sangiovese Alc. 13.5% vol.

Tasting Notes: The color is bright red, with a broad, intense and fruity nose. On the palate Tondo Tondo has hints of ripe red berry, cherry and floral tones that are slightly herbaceous. It is harmonious and well balanced, with a distinctly Tuscan taste - a wonderful wine for sharing!

Serving Suggestions: Pecorino cheese, ham, roasts, game, grilled meat, beans, soups.
