Food Pairings for Giuseppe Quintarelli Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Riserva
Upon first opening this bottle, the initial nose is of dusty dried flowers and powdered cocoa, eucalyptus and preserved cherries with a slightly smoky hint to it. But this was far from the end as with time the nose evolved to spice box with caramel roasted nuts and hints of brown sugar or is that molasses. Ever changing and forever interesting layers of hit you as time passes, at one point it could have been a well aged Vin Santo and a moment later a rich modern Barolo… Forever changing and unforgettable. This dark ruby beauty, on the palette, displayed a super smooth consistency with a weight that began as full but finished fresh with candied cherry, rum raisin and cardamom. The term cough syrup does it no justice but comes to mind as layers of dark fruit hit you over and over. The finish goes on for minutes with vanilla and fig and even as you drink or eat, it stays with you longer than any wine I have yet experienced. Quintarelli is a master and yes, this wine is worth $300+ dollars.
Had the extraordinary opportunity to taste this wine at E. 48th Street Market in Dunwoody, Ga., and I must say that this is easily one of the finest wines ever produced. There is so much going on in each glass that every sip is like a thrilling ride at an amusement park. Need the perfect wine to celebrate a promotion, retirement, a new grandchild? Look no further. Grab a fine cigar, prop your feet up in front of a warm fire, grab some chocolate, relax and enjoy. The glass, the color and the bouquet won't lie, but wait until you take your first, second and third sips. Amazing.
