Giuseppe Quintarelli Recioto della Valpolicella Classico 2004 375ml
PRE-ARRIVAL
Price: $199.00

Arguably Italy's greatest sweet red wine, Quintarelli Recioto is one of IWM's fastest-selling dessert wines; the 2004 saw a benchmark vintage for the Veneto, and this Recioto vintage is a decadent delight that doesn’t sacrifice detail for power. Quintarelli’s '04 Recioto reflects its ideal growing season in its kaleidoscopic layers, velvety texture, and mind-blowing complexity. This wine layers its sweet black cherries and juicy figs with mentholated herbs, Christmas spices, roasted coffee, worn leather, and dark chocolate in a Port-like palate that marries lively acidity with intense dry extract. Velvety tannins provide a sensual backdrop, while savory earthy notes complement the wine’s sweet fruits into its lingering, extended finish. Rarely produced, this bottling appears only three to four times a decade because it requires thirty pounds of grapes (it’s a blend of mostly Corvina and Corvinone, with Rondinella, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Croatina, and Sangiovese) and at least ten years of aging to create one standard bottle. This hedonistic drink will recalibrate everything you thought you knew about dessert wine. more info
