Winemaker Notes

Floral aroma of red roses and pansies, fruity aroma of cherries, sour cherries, plums, greengages, woodland berries such as blackberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants, raspberries. Well balanced, tangy and fresh. Intense and with a good body despite its young lightness.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

I am a huge fan of the 2016 Corvina Scaia. Obviously, this low price point makes it attractive. But I am also an admirer of the Corvina Veronese grape, especially when it is fermented on its own. This expression sees no oak. You get lots of fresh cherry and red berry fruit here with bright acidity and a tangy note of herb or bitter almond. The wine is bright ruby in both appearance and in character. Some 300,000 bottles were released.

Scaia Castagnedi Brothers - Owners of Scaia Winery Image

In the 1980s, four brothers—Armando, Tiziano, Paolo, and Massimo Castagnedi—began making their first moves toward opening their own winery. They had inherited 50 acres of vineyards in the eastern section of Valpolicella from their father, and in 1989 they purchased 75 more acres in the same general area, releasing their first vintage under the Tenuta Sant'Antonio label in 1995. In 2006 they began a new project under the Scaia label to further explore the potential of the traditional varieties they were growing.

In naming this new brand Scaia, they referenced the type of soil they had in their vineyards—a chalky, granular soil that broke apart easily. Scaia is a word in Veronese dialect for crumbs, like little pieces of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese that fall off a large block, which the soil resembles. Scaia soil imparts a higher acidity and bolder fruit character to the wines.

The Scaia brand became an avenue for innovation, where they could experiment with new interpretations of the great traditions of Valpolicella and Veneto—for example, atypical blends of traditional grape varieties, or varietal wines from grapes that are usually blended. The resulting wines—white, red, and rosato—are strongly rooted in the region’s winemaking traditions, but with a fresh twist and at an affordable price.
