A blend of Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Ribolla Gialla, Malvasia. The first vintage of this wine dates back to 1973. Historically, Vintage Tunina starts out as a blend of the best grapes that are harvested late, depending on the year, about two weeks after the normal harvest on an area of about 16 hectares of vineyards cultivated on Ronco del Fortino Tunina was both the name of the lady who was the first owner of this vineyard and Casanova’s poorest lover (she used to be a housekeeper for a Venetian family and her name was Tunina, a nickname of Antonia), whom the wine is dedicated to.

...but exceptional the Vintage Tunina is, and for many other reasons. No-one until now has ever realised it, but it is the most extraordinary meditation wine in existence. Not in the passive sense (wine to drink while meditating), but in the active sense: it is a wine that makes you meditate...”
“Civiltà del Bere” (October 2000) 

This has a very fresh and polished character with sliced pears, white nectarines, crushed stones and citrus leaf. Lots of floral undertones, too. Medium- to full-bodied. Sleek textural mouthfeel and steady acidity gives freshness to the fruit and beautifully highlights its mineral backbone.
