Brothers Tiziano, Armando, Paolo and Massimo Castagnedi own Tenuta Sant’Antonio, a winery located in the eastern part of the Valpolicella zone in Italy. The original estate, a 49 acre parcel inherited from their father, almost doubled in size when the brothers acquired 74 acres in 1989. The estate vineyards are planted along the hillsides in Mezzane, Lavagno, and San Martino Buon Albergo at an average altitude of 1,148 feet. Their meticulous attention to viticulture and combined with hand harvesting ensures high-quality fruit, ergo minimal intervention in the cellar.
Technical notes
Corvina fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks was aged on its lees with weekly battonage.

Producer
Inheritors of their father's 20 hectare estate in the eastern part of the Valpolicella zone, the four Castagnedi Brothers (Tiziano, Armando, Paolo & Massimo) acquired another 30 hectares in 1989, which spurred the birth of the estate’s first wines as Tenuta Sant'Antonio in 1995. All four brothers are involved in the project, with extensive experience managing their father's vineyards as well as consulting for properties throughout Italy. Tenuta Sant'Antonio's hillside vineyards are located among the Mezzane, Lavagno, and San Martino Buon Albergo villages at an average altitude of 350 meters. Meticulous attention to vine density (Guyot trained at 7-8,000 vine per hectare), hand harvesting, and low yields provide fruit of exceptional quality, requiring minimal "intervention” during wine-making. Due to their commitment to quality and extensive estate vineyard holdings, they are positioned to become one of the most important producers in the Valpolicella zone, offering both availability and affordability.
