Love for the Land, Passion for the Wine
Tenuta degli Angeli, meaning ‘Land of the Angels’, is known for excellence in the Lombardy region of the wine world, and was opened in Santo Stefano degli Angeli in Carobbio degli Angeli in 1984.
The vineyard, known as the ‘bomboniera’ (meaning ‘favour’) was planted with great passion and the wine making expertise of founder Pierangelo Testa, creating a small corner of paradise where the microclimate, soil rich with calcareous marlstone, southern exposure and the layout of the terraces all guarantee a unique wine.
The baton has been passed on to the female side of the family and Tenuta degli Angeli is now managed by Manuela with daughters Laura, Roberta,and Maria, and her son Francesco.
In the traditional masculine world of wine making, the farm has managed to make its name, with great sensitivity and determination, and as a result, obtaining internationally renowned awards: two Gold Medals in 2014 and in 2015, with the Extrabrut degli Angeli Classic Method and the Brut degli Angeli Classic Method respectively, at the VINITALY international wine-competition.
