Description Sub Region Producer Notes
Describing Quintarelli Amarone Riserva is always pointless--its myriad notes render the wine beyond words--but rarely is this more true in the darkly gorgeous ’03 Amarone Valpolicella Riserva. Juicy red and blue fruits dance with incense, Christmas cake, kirsch, warm saddle leather and cigar wrapper in a bewitching bottling that is one of the final wines to come from the late, great Giuseppe Quintarelli himself. Velvety and caressing, this wine wraps the palate with unrestrained voluptuousness, building to a crescendo of flavor notes and lingering, fine-grained tannins. An absolute traditionalist, Giuseppe never changed the techniques set by his father Silvio Quintarelli in the 1920s, and his Amarones sat as benchmarks for the genre. This wine is a hedonist’s delight, a wine to be savored and meditated upon, and it’s a fitting tribute to one of the world’s greatest winemakers ever to have lived.
