Quintarelli Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva 2007 (1.5L) (1 OWC)

The King of Amarone

Quintarelli family has been producing wine for more than 100 years, first in an area called Figàri and then from 1924 in Negrar, the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. Quintarelli is often regarded as Valpolicella's magician and the king of Amarone and Reciotto. Their approach is renowned to be strongly traditionalist with only a few concessions to modernity, they age their Amarone in Slavonian oak vats for seven years. Nevertheless, this “traditionalist” has undertaken several highly innovative winemaking projects, they began producing a white wine – something very unusual in the Valpolicella area. Then he crafted a delicious blend “Primofoire” which combines Corvina, cabernet sauvignon, and cabernet franc grapes. Finally, he invented the extremely rare and coveted Alzero which is made from slowly dried cabernet franc grapes. Their labels are beautifully handwritten, the Quintarelli name stands for the family, the wines, as style, a tradition, the authenticity, and artisanal high-quality wine.

(RP=97) The previous vintages of the wine immediately preceding this one are 2003 and 2000. Jump forward in time, and the 2007 Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Riserva will linger on the market for a while because the estate has not yet decided which vintage will be next, but as a rule of thumb, the Riserva is only made two or maybe three times per decade. Only 5,838 bottles of this wine were produced. I'm told that the 2015, 2016, and 2017 vintages are all very strong contenders for Riserva status. In any case, this is the last Riserva to be made in Giuseppe Quintarelli's lifetime (he passed away in 2012). One of the criteria that makes a Riserva is the appassimento process that is extended by a couple of months here. This wine boasts 17% alcohol, and that enormous inner power is ultimately what drives this wine. That motor is enhanced by rich fullness, dense texture, and beautifully balanced aromas of dried fruit, exotic spice, cigar box, and moist potting soil. The quality of the aromas is absolutely clear and pristine, and the tannins have been softened into absolute silkiness.
