2004 Giuseppe Quintarelli - Rosso IGT "Ca Del Merlo" Veneto
"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
Giuseppe Quintarelli Description
"This bottling is a single-vineyard Valpolicella, produced using both the appassimento and ripasso techniques. It is rounder, more fruit-driven, and more approachable upon release than the Valpolicella below. It ages beautifully but can also be enjoyed now." -Kermit Lynch, Importer
