Giuseppe Quintarelli Amarone Della Valpolicella 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"• Amarone is only produced in exceptional years • In truly exceptional years an Amarone Riserva is produced, a personal barrel selection by the family • Careful selection of grapes during harvest • After harvest, grapes sit in wooden boxes or on rush mats • Careful attention is paid to the positioning of the grapes so the appassimento can occur naturally • Noble rot starts to appear in November and develops mostly in January • Grapes are pressed at the end of January and after 20 days of maceration, alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts • Fermentation lasts 45 days • Wine is then racked and ages in Slavonian oak barrels for seven years • Alcoholic fermentation continues during this aging period creating a dry wine" -Importer
