4 /5

From the famous 2009 vintage, Quintarelli kept 1 keg which they bottled 11 years later, hence the Riserva version. It is almost indescribable what this very long maturation (11 years) does with this wine. This is a wine with 30+ years of storage potential

This Amarone is only made in the best years. This Amarone is only made in the best years and after the 2003, 2006 and 2007 the 2009 is the next vintage. The vineyards were planted in the eighties. The soil type is basalt with limestone. Quintarelli has only 11 hectares of vineyard in total. The wine is very intense ruby red, with a great powerful bouquet of red fruits, cherries, plums supplemented with cocoa, licorice and vanilla. The palate is full, intense with tremendously refined elegance and a remarkably long powerful aftertaste and unparalleled complexity. The wine is a blend of 55% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon supplemented with some hints of Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and Croatina.

In the years leading up to 'Bepi' Giuseppe Quintarelli's death in 2012 from Parkinson's disease, there was much confusion about the ups and downs of this absolute top wine house. Giuseppe Quintarelli had been ill for a long time, but his relatives (four daughters and a lot of grandchildren) started a new chapter more than a year after his death. Quintarelli's heirs Francesco and Lorenzo (both grandsons) now manage together with Giampaolo (son-in-law) and continue to focus on providing only top quality.
