Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
The product of a ripe growing season with just enough water, just enough coolness, and just enough sun, Quintarelli’s ’11 Amarone is a big-bodied, balanced, and seductive beauty. Gobs of brooding black fruits dance with crisp red berries, melted chocolate, fresh earth, mentholated herbs, roasted nuts, espresso and pressed violet petals in this seamless, spellbinding wine. For all its power, this intense and velvety Amarone shows its Quintarelli breeding in its finesse and elegance; sturdy, chewy tannins and electric acidity combine to show this wine’s extreme youth, but time will tame the tannic and acidic edges to reveal a stunning, age-worthy Amarone. This collector's wine is primarily the indigenous Corvina and Corvinone, blended with Rondinella and traces of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Croatina, and Sangiovese. Following a slightly early harvest, grapes are left to dry out naturally, and the estate ages the wine in big Slavonian casks for a minimum of six or seven years. Replete with many layers and flavors, Quintarelli's Amarone demands to be contemplated rather than merely consumed. Quintarelli produced fewer than a thousand cases, with just a handful making it to the States.
