Tenuta Sant'Antonio SCAIA Paradiso Rosso Veneto 2016 75cl 14.5% ABV
Tenuta Sant Antonio is a family business which was founded in 1989 when four brothers; Armando, Tiziano, Paulo and Massimo Castagnedi bought a property in Monti Garbi embarking on their collective dream of producing critically acclaimed, multi-award winning premium wines from Veneto.>
The brothers father, Antonio, who the company is named after, was himself a winegrower who supplied various well established companies in the region with high quality Soave grapes. It was in his vineyards whilst the four brothers were growing up that they decided to create their own company, which they named Tenuta Sant Antonio.
As with the entire SCAIA line of wines, SCAIA Paradiso is a very modern fruity wine. It is made of a blend dominated by Corvina with some Rondinella and vinified using the ripasso technique to give it more depth and additional complexity.
SCAIA Paradiso is ruby red with purple reflections. On the nose there are aromas of morello cherry, small woodland berries, candied red fruits, and spicy notes of black pepper, liquorice, cocoa, and tobacco. On the palate, the flavour is soft and warm, with a distinct velvety feeling that envelops the whole mouth.
