Tenuta Sant’Antonio witnesses today additional values in the area of Verona, which has always been suited by its character to research and development, not only in the wine sector.
These new values are not so easy to convey, as they are strongly rooted in a brand, in a vision and in a goal that the Castagnedi brothers have had clear for many years.
If we could summarize this concept into a simple sentence, we could say that one cannot be a qualitative witness of a territory without having worked internally in the cellar and in the vineyard in a far-sighted way, always looking at the protection of the brand, wanting to be “strong at home so we can be strong outside”.
The Pinot Grigio of Tenuta Sant’Antonio is totally a representative of this vision because it is a refined Pinot Grigio with character, elegant and full of its enviable harmony.
It has a full golden yellow color and slight greenish hints and it is almost a certainty for the taster to be in front of a great white wine.
The freshness on the nose opens up to a panorama of enveloping and well-coordinated aromas, almost like a well-established symphony orchestra. The typical scent of white pulp fruit is completed with spring wildflowers, the aromatic herbs are gentle and careful to bring out notes of bergamot, a nose that is not satisfied with being enveloped by this pleasure just once.
In the mouth it is rich, complete in all its facets, with great persistence and balance with a mineral and acidic note that immediately attracts drinking.
Soft in a finish that recalls, without exception, the olfactory notes that then evolved on the palate.
There are many combinations, from the aperitif to first or second courses of fish or white meat, but with obsessive attention to the quality of the raw materials, so as not to lose, in our opinion, the qualitative pleasure of this testimony that comes from afar.
With Pinot Grigio, to close the circle of the concept of territorial and company valorization, a new aesthetic path also opens up. Made of new labels and a new vision on the value of local white wines. Without forgetting the history of the SOAVE DOC and PINOT GRIGIO DELLE VENEZIE DOC denominations, in order to convey the renewed awareness of the value of the wines of these volcanic and sulphurous territories, the Castagnedi family renews and innovates the aesthetics, introducing an even more elegant, international and incisive aesthetic which, through the stylizations of the colors and the elements of their terroir, wants to tell the cleanliness, verticality and elegance of their stylistic choices that have always characterized them. A very elegant, refined and sophisticated aesthetic.
Tenuta Sant’Antonio was established in 1995 as a dream of the four Castagnedi brothers who, coming from generations of winegrowers, were committed to making iconic wines guided by research, experience and passion, giving a new interpretation to terroirs that encompass true milestones of the Veneto, Italian and worldwide winemaking tradition. Valpolicella DOC and Soave DOC. Located on the beautiful hillsides of Colognola ai Colli, the Estate is an ambitious and constantly evolving business project that has always set rigorous quality as the backbone of production, continually pushing the boundaries of innovation to promote sustainability, excellence and international acknowledgement, and ensuring the highest expression of the Estate’s identity. Three brands are produced, Tenuta Sant’Antonio, Scaia and Télos, capable of astounding with labels ranging from Amarone to Soave and Valpolicella, each with its own soul while being all intrinsically bound up with the company’s know-how. Through them, the family expresses its vision of viticulture, creating each bottle in a unique way and applying the painstaking care of craftsmanship to a production that will captivate consumers worldwide.
