TASTING NOTES

Amarone della Valpolicella Selezione Antonio Castagnediis a red wine produced by Sant’Antonio estate, belonging to Docg Amarone della Valpolicella. Sant’Antonio estate was established in 1989 when the four entrepreneurial Castagnedi brothers, Armando, Massimo, Tiziano and Paolo expanded their passion for viticulture and bought 30 more hectares of vineyards in Mezzane, to add to their father’s 20 vineyards in Colognola ai Colli. Now they manage about 100 hectares in Veneto’s largest and most important wine producing areas, i.e. between Valpolicella and the Soave area. Classic varieties such as Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella as well as Garganega, Trebbiano di Soave and Chardonnay feel right at home here. The vineyards stretch along the valleys of the Illasi and Mezzane hills, close to the Alps, 120 to 320 metres above sea level. The climate is softened by the breeze from Lake Garda, with compact calcium-rich soils. All these components are enhanced by almost completely natural production processes in the vineyard, as well as in the cellar, so that each cultivated variety can express itself and the land it comes from. The Castagnedi brothers’ production philosophy is based both on their in-depth wine making expertise and a deep respect for the environment, paying close attention to every stage of the supply chain. This is how their wines are born, including Amarone della Valpolicella Selezione Antonio Castagnedi Docg, which is produced from a meticulously conceived blend of: 70% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta and 5% Croatina. After several selections of the best bunches suitable for drying, the grapes are dried and vinified in stainless steel tanks, followed by ageing in tonneaux for 24 months. The result is wine that displays an intense ruby red colour in the glass. On the nose, it opens with balsamic notes, accompanied by hints of ripe small black fruits and floral notes of violets, and touches of liquorice root and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is incredibly dynamic, structured, balanced, with well integrated tannins and savoury notes. Perfect for Sunday lunches, it goes well with slow-cooked red meat dishes and mature cheeses. Read more Read less
