Winemaker Notes

Ruby red with purple reflections. Ripe red fruit, spicy fragrances of licorice, black pepper and a hint of chocolate. Well-balanced, with round tannins, soft, hot, full-flavored, elegant, fine and fresh.

Pair with flavorsome first courses garnished with truffle, hareand game – grilled, roasted or boiled red meat – maturecheeses.

Wine Enthusiast
This offers composure: a feeling of balance, intensity, harmony and rich density. The bouquet yields pretty tones of bold blueberry, smooth chocolate, teriyaki, cola, dried ginger and sweet pipe tobacco.

Tenuta Sant'Antonio, Veneto, Italy
Image of winery
Four brothers and a love for wine which began in their father's vineyards in San Zeno di Colognola ai Colli in the Valpolicella district which produces the most famous wines in the Verona area: Amarone, Valpolicella and Soave. The brothers, driven by the desire to put themselves to the test outside the family business, soon found themselves embarking on a new adventure. Forerunners of their time, they worked as technical consultants for years, creating innovative 'turnkey' solutions throughout Italy. The unique experience they gained led them to a momentous decision. In 1989 they purchased 30 hectares of land around Mezzane which, when added to their father's property, brought the Tenuta Sant'Antonio vineyards to its current total of 50 hectares.

The time was right for them to take the plunge. Armando, Paolo, Tiziano and Massimo Castagnedi decided to produce their own wine, becoming vinedressers and earning a name for themselves for their quality and professionalism. It was a real challenge. The decision to plant new vines alongside the existing vineyards and to build a new winery in the Monti Garbi area (which in dialect means "sour" or "hard", demanded courage and a keen business sense: two qualities which the Castagnedi brothers are not short on.

For more than twenty years, while many wine producers were focusing on quantity, the Castagnedi clan rewrote the rulebook, concentrating wholly on quality. Ever since it was established, Tenuta Sant'Antonio has remained faithful to certain principles: tending to the vine branch by branch, carefully handpicking the bunches, low yield per plant, keeping the grapes meticulously clean from when they are picked to when they are taken to the winery and the wine bottled, patiently waiting for the wine to mature in new wooden barrels, ageing in the bottle.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
