Amarone della Valpolicella Docg Riserva “Lilium Est” by Tenuta Sant’Antonio
Indulge in the rich and intense Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva “Lilium Est” by Tenuta Sant’Antonio. Crafted from a blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Croatina and Oseleta grapes, carefully handpicked from vineyards in Monti Garbi, Mezzane di Sotto, this wine is a masterpiece of the art of winemaking.
The wine’s inky ruby red color and intense aroma are a prelude to its complex flavor profile. Balsamic and iodine notes combine with the fragrance of ripe cherries, plums, and woodland berries. Aromatic spices like star anise, cinnamon, cardamom, black pepper, vanilla, and ginger add depth and complexity, while tertiary aromas of cocoa, chocolate, goudron, almond, toasted hazelnuts, and pipe tobacco elevate the experience.
On the palate, the wine is dry, warm, and soft, well-balanced by notable acidity, richness of flavor, and rounded tannin content. The finish is fine and persistent, leaving a memorable aftertaste.
This wine is aged for 3 years in new Bordeaux barrels, followed by a minimum of 4 years in a bottle before being released to the market. Pair it with charcoal-grilled red meats, roast beef, braised meat, sliced beef or foal, roasts with tasty sauces, furred and feathered game, or hard and mature cheeses. This wine is ready to be savored now or stored for later, a true testament to the winemakers’ dedication to the craft.
