Amarone Dell Valpolicella Classico 2012

Quintarelli Guiseppe, Amareno Della Valpolicella Classico 2012

RRP £240

The quintessential Amarone. Quintarelli takes Amarone to another level of focused intensity and precision. Its 2012 is a sophisticated, exquisitely aromatic and quietly powerful wine, which flows silkily and discreetly. Great poise, with a vibrant finish. Hard to choose between 2011 and 2012 – 2012 is more perfumed and poetic, while 2011 is a touch more austere and vibrant, will age longer and be more versatile with food.
