Occasional Wine Note: This is a BIG wine!  HEAVY clove and dark fruit aromas with a bit of residual sugar.  This type of Amarones is not for everyone, but if you like big juicy red wines that are a tad sweet and want to try an Amarone, this is an excellent specimen.

    Critic Score: 95

    The 2017 Amarone della Valpolicella Campo dei Gigli is intense, like cracking open an ashen stone to find a bevy of dried black cherries, cinnamon sticks, incense and dried herbs. This is deeply textural with a balanced inner sweetness elevated by vibrant acidity as depths of tart red fruit balance and slowly saturates the palate in primary concentration. The 2017 finishes structured and dramatically long, begging for further cellaring, as a bitter tinge of currants and clove fade. Maybe splitting hairs, but I didn't believe that Tenuta Sant'Antonio could outdo their 2016 Campo dei Gigli, but over time the 2017 may be up to the task.

    Thick and rather syrupy dried black fruit faces a wall of black-peppery, toasted oak on the nose, then turning more licoricy on the palate. Any subtler, more complex character is for now waiting in the wings for the youthful fruit and oak to vacate the center-stage. And that may take some time. Nevertheless, it’s attractive to drink even now and will continue to give pleasure for many a year.
