Project Description

SCAIA

Veneto

The latest project from renowned Valpolicella producers Tenuta Sant’Antonio

SCAIA is one of the brands of Tenuta Sant’Antonio winery. SCAIA is not just a line of wines: it is a new way of thinking about wine, in a land where tradition has great value. From the classicism of historic wines like Soave and Valpolicella sprang the necessity to create something new, closer to our requirements as young producers. The Scaia project is the contemporary interpretation of the great tradition of Tenuta Sant’Antonio.

We began with three young SCAIA wines, made only in steel tanks, in a constant search for freshness, pleasant drinking and aromatic complexity. We then added two other, more complex wines, which have not lost those characteristics, even though they are partly produced with slightly withered grapes.

The zone is to the north-east of Verona, near the historic areas where two illustrious Veronese wines are produced: Valpolicella and Soave. Our vineyards are on a ridge of hills, close to the Alps. In Veneto dialect, the word “scaia” means a chip of stone, chalk, limestone: it is a tribute to our soil, where a line of unique young wines is produced.
