Tenuta Sant'Antonio Amarone Della Valpolicella Campo Dei Gigli 2013

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Product information: Brothers Tiziano, Armando, Paolo and Massimo Castagnedi own Tenuta Sant'Antonio, a winery located in the eastern part of the Valpolicella zone in Italy. The original estate, a 49 acre parcel inherited from their father, almost doubled in size when the brothers acquired 74 acres in 1989. The estate vineyards are planted along the hillsides in Mezzane, Lavagno, and San Martino Buon Albergo at an average altitude of 1,148 feet. Their meticulous attention to viticulture and combined with hand harvesting ensures high-quality fruit, ergo minimal intervention in the cellar.Brothers Tiziano, Armando, Paolo and Massimo Castagnedi own Tenuta Sant'Antonio, a winery located in the eastern part of the Valpolicella zone in Italy.

Probably one of the best wines I have recently tried! I had it in Rome last week with some typical roman food such as maccheroni all' amatriciana, roman style tripes and tagliata con rughetta...phenomenal, round, full-bodied, aromas of ripe prune, chocolate...awesome!

The estate's top selection, the 2003 Amarone Campo dei Gigli, is an awesome effort. A dark ruby, it exhibits notable purity and depth in its dark fruit, licorice, chocolate, spices and blackberries. It offers superb balance in a sumptuous, lush style. The Campo dei Gigli is 70% Corvina/Corvinone, 20% Rondinella and 10% Croatina and Oseleta grown on a hillside vineyard. The wine saw three years of aging in French oak. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2015. Deep dark concentration sets the tone for a shapely wine accented by black cherry, almond-amaretto, resin and dark chocolate. It's not the intensity of these aromas that sets this wine apart, but the quality. Together, they form a seamless, elegant whole with mouth-watering succulence and a polished feel. - M.L. ** Only 3 in Stock **
