A legendary location, the paradigm of a wine created from the vine, the world’s indisputable Valpolicella protagonist. Campo dei Gigli is the taste-and-olfactory translation of Tenuta Sant’Antonio’s Amarone, which finds a distinct depth and character in the rough and impoverished earth of the Garbi Mountains, on very chalky and calcareous soils. In order to enrich itself with intimate and territorial sensations that see terroir as the only common thread, it moves away from the large palate volumes characterized by the fruit and moves away from the more classic nuances of Amarone. Terroir is inserted into the French semantic meaning of territory, microclimate, and man to profoundly affect its personality.

Amarone della Valpolicella Campo dei Gigli’s verticality, which is exemplified in the tradition of the five classic grapes Corvinone, Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina, and Oseleta, and translated into a blend of dynamic expression and perfect evolution, is unquestionably its strongest attribute. This is accomplished by utilizing over sixty-year-old vines grown using the traditional pergola approach, properly ripe grapes, a pressing no later than mid-December, and refinements in new 500-litre barrels.
As a result, this wine seeks to novel gustatory justifications, powerful in mineral foundations, and winds that continuously blow on the Estate, assuring nocturnal excursions and complete pleasantness of the grapes.

Huge, vast, and uncomplicated, the nose transitions between flavors of licorice, mustard, and fall sage. A match of strong aromas compacted by withering, on the other hand, drives towards a dry, smooth tongue with notes of mint, graphite, and embers.
A limited production that takes shape only in the greatest vintages, the outcome of a project supported by nature.
