Giuseppe Quintarelli Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 1997

$467

GUARANTEED BEST PROVENANCE: DIRECTLY IMPORTED FROM ITALY BY AIR Only produced in exceptional years, the Quintarelli family led by the late, great master Giuseppe truly set the gold standard of Amarone -- the most extraordinary in all of the Valpolicella region. This Quintarelli 1997 vintage is simply magical. With a medium-full body, this sensual wine intensely shows dried red fruits of plums & cherries, baking spices and cocoa, dark earth and a hint of smokiness that lingers on the palate. The wine evolves remarkably in the glass with a deepening richness and concentration.

1997 vintage. Like a tawny port on the nose. Lots of wood, walnut, dried fruits and dark fruits. On the palate, more vintage port like. Chocolate, herbs, floral and plummy. Not as full bodied as I was expecting. The sweetness level is medium sweet for me, as the acidity keeps this very light and airy. The tannins are ripe and integrated. It's not exactly my favourite Quintarelli, but it's still excellent.
