Come experience the wines from one of Amarone's most notorious families:
Championing One of Italy's Most Prestigious Wines
Next week the Association of Amarone Families will be in Boston and La Morra is proud to host Armando Castagnedi from Tenuta Sant'Antonio vineyards for an in depth tasting of wines from his vineyards, paired with Chef Josh's interpretation of Veronese cuisine.
A fabulous cheese course will be provided by Wasik's Cheese Shop in Wellesley http://www.wasiks.com.
Twenty years ago, when many wine producers focused purely on quantity, the Castagnedi family rewrote the rulebook, turning their full attention to quality. You will enjoy the wines from one of Italy's most renowned wineries where they tend to the vine branch by branch, carefully handpicking the bunches.
Four brothers and a love for wine 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 "turn key" solutions
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. 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.
