The 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is insanely beautiful. A dark, mysterious beauty, the 2004 hits the palate with masses of black fruit, tobacco, smoke, licorice and incense. The 2004 is constantly changing in the glass, as it reveals layer after layer of flavor and pure nuance...it is spectacular. I tasted the 2004 just after bottling, and will not be surprised if it is even better with more time in bottle. The huge, voluptuous finish bodes well for the future. Readers who can find the 2004 should not hesitate. This is another magical 2004 from Quintarelli. Antonio Galloni, Vineous Media

Dry and bitter as you must expect. Still very young (only few weeks in bottle). Elegant, complex, long. Excellent.

This wine exploded with chocolate, leather and walnuts. Truly an amazing vintage and truly a wine that can change the mind of anyone that doesn't like Italian wines. #liquidartristy

2004 vintage. Initial pour was hot and disjointed. But given an hour or so in the decanter it really bloomed. Still young, more primary flavours, but the balance, harmony and weightlessness was standard Quintarelli. Awesome stuff.

Absolutely did not expect to taste this but was totally blown away. The 2000 seemed rather closed the night I had it, but this younger 2004 really showed its stuff. Medicinal earthy aromas mixed with sweet cherry tones and smokey complex notes just continued to evolve on the palate. I was very reluctant to finish my portion and was so happy when I managed to get another taste!
