3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

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.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2013)
The 2012 Garganega Chardonnay Scaia is a delightful white blend that opens to a luminous golden straw color and vibrant aromas of lemon zest, stone fruit, cut grass and honey. The bright acidity is perfectly balanced to the overall ease and simplicity of the wine. The name “Scaia” refers to the volcanic soils that pair so perfectly with the white wines of the Veneto. The closure is a glass cork. Drink 2013-2015.
