Wine Advocate 93 points - With Antonio Castagnedi’s signature on the bottle, the 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Selezione is one of the best Amarones currently available from the excellent 2010 vintage. Its appearance is dark and extracted and the bouquet opens to spicy plum cake, dark prune, wet earth, dried rose and supple shades of used leather or suede. The wine feels plump and thick in the mouth with a long, voluptuous finish. That wonderful balance between acidity and structure promises a successful aging future. Drink 2015-2025.  (Oct 2013)

Wine Enthusiast 89 points - This boasts aromas of plum cake and vanilla, with whiffs of toast and oak. It has a ripe-cherry flavored palate, with espresso, coffee and oak sensations. (Nov 2013)

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.
