Maso Cantanghel

Trentino Alto Adige, Italy

About the producer

Small but mighty, Maso Cantanghel is one Trentino’s most exciting wine producers, crafting white and red wine with remarkable character and elegance. Young and talented Federico Simoni, currently cultivates 12 hectares in several different vineyards across different terroirs that range from 400 to 800 meters. The Vigna Cantanghel Pinot Nero comes from a single vineyard of limestone situated at an altitude of 500 meters in the field-stone encircled Cantanghel vineyard in the foothills of Lagorai mountains. It is slowly being considered one of Italy’s finest examples of elegant Pinot Nero.


The Vigna Caselle Gewurztraminer is another cru that maintains the freshness of the 600 meter location, but also with power that comes from one few areas of clay in the mountains. SotSas is an alpine blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Bianco, that perhaps most tastes of the mountain viticulture of the area- fresh, powerful, complex, but all in an easy-drinking glass.
