Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Quintarelli’s 2011 Valpolicella is one of the greatest we’ve seen, which is saying a lot. Spicy red and blue berries mingle with warm earth, cigar wrapper, cedar wood, dried rose petals, and underbrush in a seductive, seamless whole. While this wine has a pleasing tannic heft, its bright skein of acidity surprises with a counterweight, and the wine’s lush, sweet fruit is offset by savory minerality--just gorgeous! Crafted from a mélange of indigenous Veneto grape varietals, grapes dry for two months in the appassimento technique before pressing and fermentation. This wine ages for seven years in Slavonian oak botti before bottling, a protocol unheard of in the region but one the estate maintains to create nuanced and structured, complex Valpolicella with some appropriate maturity. An opportunity to experience Quintarelli magic at an affordable price point, this Valpolicella is a true “baby Amarone.”
