Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
While still very young, the '04 Quintarelli Amarone shows a complex, velvety palate that scintillates with a kaleidoscopic swirl of plums, chocolate, espresso, earth and that ineffable Quintarelli terroir. This is a massive, voluptuous wine that never sits still in the glass, and it's only going to grow more phenomenal with age. The Quintarelli 2004 Amarone is a hedonist's delight, a wine to be savored and meditated upon, and a fitting tribute to one of the world's greatest winemakers ever to have lived. Quintarelli produces its Amarone only in exceptional vintages, reliably crafting the benchmark for all Amarone. This collector's wine is primarily the indigenous Corvina and Crovinone, 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 so 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.
