Amarone della Valpolicella Docg “Campo dei Gigli” by Tenuta Sant’Antonio
The Amarone “Campo dei Gigli” by Tenuta Sant’Antonio is a renowned wine, considered a modern and sophisticated jewel of the Valpolicella region. This classic wine of the territory prioritizes finesse and tension over concentration, creating a well-rounded and balanced taste.
The grapes for the Amarone “Campo dei Gigli” are carefully selected and hand-picked from the company’s vineyards located in Monti Garbi. These grapes are cultivated with great care, maintaining a balance with the environment. To achieve this balance, minimal pest treatments are used without any herbicides, and the grape clusters are thinned. After harvest, the grapes are left to rest in well-ventilated areas for up to three months. Natural alcoholic fermentation occurs in open 500-liter French oak tonneaux for 60-70 days, followed by a 3-year aging process in new tonneaux.
The nose of this Amarone is dominated by an intense fruity aroma, which gradually opens up to reveal boisé and mineral scents, followed by a bouquet of fresh flowers, spices, and a hint of chocolate. The palate entrance is austere and elegant, exhibiting an impeccable balance. The tannins are perfectly balanced and combine with a deep mineral flavor that allows the Amarone “Campo dei Gigli” to showcase its character and masterful richness.
With an impervious ruby-red color and purple reflections, the wine boasts an excellent aroma of wild fruits, along with licorice, black pepper, tobacco, spices, and chocolate notes. The taste is well-balanced, with a perfect combination of tannins and mineral depth, making it ideal for pairing with grilled meats, aged cheeses, and flavorful pasta dishes.
