Inheritors of their father's 20 hectare estate in the eastern part of the Valpolicella region, the four Castagnedi Brothers: Tiziano, Armando, Paolo and Massimo acquire another 30 hectares in 1989, creating Tenuta Sant'Antonio in 1995, with the goal of producing premium DOC wines—since then, it has grown into the world-renowned wine producer. The SCAIA project is the contemporary interpretation of the great tradition of Tenuta Sant'Antonio: a constant quest for fresh, pleasant drinking and aromatically complex wines! With a focus on quality over quan- tity and maintaining a balance between tradition and experi- mentation, the SCAIA project incorporates regionally significant varietals such as Corvina, Rondinella and Garganega into their wines—producing interesting expressions of these varietals that aren’t often tasted on their own.
Pale tangerine hue. Aromatically this wine has delicate notes of white flowers, citrus zest, under-ripe strawberries and a touch of chalk. On the palate the wine has a delightfully bracing acidity with flavors of stone fruit, lemon curds and tart raspberry jam.
