TASTING NOTES

Veneto Corvina Scaia IGT is a dry red wine produced by Tenuta Sant'Antonio. Tenuta Sant'Antonio 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. Today, they manage about 100 hectares located between the largest and most important designations in the Veneto region, namely between Valpolicella and the area of Soave. Classic varieties such as Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella as well as Garganega, Trebbiano di Soave and Chardonnay all 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 wine 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. With this in mind, they created the Scaia line, dedicated to those wines made from grapes grown on vineyards grown on soils consisting mainly of chalk, limestone and stone, which are called “scaie” in the local dialect. A tribute dedicated to these special soils that yield unique wines. Veneto Corvina Scaia IGT is produced from 100% Corvina grapes, which undergo alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel containers, in which they then age for a short period. The result is a young wine that displays a ruby red with purplish shades in the glass. On the nose it expresses floral notes of rose and violet, alongside hints of crunchy (red) berry fruit. On the palate, it is pleasantly fresh, has a medium body and closes on savoury notes. Perfect for every day, it goes well with dishes based on cured meats. Read more Read less
