Sku: 041556

Brothers Tiziano, Armando, Paolo and Massimo Castagnedi own Tenuta Sant’Antonio, a winery located in the eastern part of the Valpolicella zone in Italy. The original estate, a 49 acre parcel inherited from their father, almost doubled in size when the brothers acquired 74 acres in 1989. The estate vineyards are planted along the hillsides in Mezzane, Lavagno, and San Martino Buon Albergo at an average altitude of 1,148 feet. Their meticulous attention to viticulture and combined with hand harvesting ensures high-quality fruit, ergo minimal intervention in the cellar.

Tasting notes
A medium-bodied, youthful wine that offers aromas and flavors of sweet plums, black cherries and dark berries.

Wine maker notes
The color is ruby red with purple glints. On the nose it's flowery with notes of red rose and sweet violet, fruity hints of cherry, wild black cherry, plum, fruits of the forest such as blackberry, redcurrant, blackcurrant and raspberry. On the palate it is well-balanced, flavorsome and fresh. Intense and medium bodied despite its youth.

Technical notes
Corvina fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks was aged on its lees with weekly battonage.
