Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2009 saw a ripe yet excellent vintage in the Veneto, and this Quintarelli Amarone reflects its growing year in its full-throttle power, its intensity, its velvety feel, and its unabashed opulence. Layers and layers of red and blue fruits unfurl with Christmas cake, sweet balsamic herbs, new leather, potpourri and touches of loam in this expressive, deep wine. Approachable almost out of the gate, this Quintarelli Amarone nonetheless has the structure to drink over the medium term. This collector's Amarone is a blend of indigenous Corvina along with Rondinella, Molinara, Negrara and traces of Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, Sangiovese, and Nebbiolo. Following a slightly early harvest, grapes are left to dry out naturally in the appassimento method, which concentrates flavors and sugars to create Amarone’s distinct and hedonistic profile; after pressing the grapes and allowing them to ferment for 45 days, the estate ages the wine in big Slavonian casks for a minimum of seven years.
