The Amarone della Valpolicella Selection Antonio Castagnedi of Tenuta Sant'Antonio is born in vineyards located in the municipalities of Colognola ai Colli and Mezzane di Sotto, in the province of Verona.

It is mainly produced with Corvina and Rondinella, Croatina and Oseleta grapes, harvested only by hand. After a soft pressing, the grapes ferment in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperature with selected yeasts. Subsequently the wine ages in barrique for 2 years before being bottled.

Antonio Castagnedi Selection is characterized by a ruby ​​red color with purple reflections. The nose opens with aromas of ripe red fruits, enriched with pleasant spicy notes of licorice, black pepper and chocolate. On the palate it is warm, savory and pleasantly fresh. The wine has a well balanced body, with round tannins.

Perfect to accompany pasta dishes with truffles and aged cheeses, it is ideal in combination with game, roasts and grilled red meats.
