Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Upon release, Quintarelli’s ’98 Amarone was praised for its purity, its intensity, and its complexity; now with almost two decades of maturity this wine is even more magical. Succulent red and blue fruits mingle with a mélange of peppery spices, autumn leaves, stewed plums, black tea and warm saddle leather in this utterly spellbinding Amarone.  Full-bodied yet incredibly detailed, this ’98 Amarone unfolds on the palate with terrific transparency and exquisite balance, revealing layer upon layer of notes and textures as it glides to a resonant, lingering finish. This collector's wine is primarily from the indigenous Corvina along with Rondinella, Molinara, Negara and traces of Cabernet, Sangiovese, and Nebbiolo, made in the painstaking appassimento method. Replete with myriad layers and endless flavors, Quintarelli’s Amarone demands to be contemplated rather than merely consumed. Always rich, opulent, sensuous and extraordinary, Quintarelli’s magical Amarones hold you in their thrall.
