2004 Giuseppe Quintarelli - Rosso Ca del Merlo Veneto Magnum (1.5L)
"Even more rare than the Amarone Classico, the Riserva is typically only produced a couple of times per decade, when Mother Nature has provided grapes of truly exceptional, near-perfect quality. Aged for over eight years in barrel, the Riserva is a tour de force. Incredibly complex and profoundly rich and robust, the Riserva simply oozes from the glass, dripping notes of blackberry preserves, dried blueberry, bacon fat, burnt sage and toasty oak. Pure decadence and yet not without restraint or poise." -SFWTC Staff

"The 2004 Ca' del Merlo is slightly less generous than the expressive 2003. Make no mistake: Quintarelli's trademark elegance is on full display. This vintage delivers more in the mouth with a fuller, more generous mouthfeel and more firmness on the finish. Crushed mineral and forest berry is backed by a beautiful touch of acidity and integrated cherry. Drink 2014-2022."
