    Description

    Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2007
    Riserva, G. Quintarelli
    Magnum (6)

    The Osprey Collection! This is only a portion of an incredibly uncompromising, no-holds-barred, no-expense-spared collection. Sourced from elite cellars and stored meticulously, this is a treasure trove with few equals!

    "...the 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva will linger on the market for a while because the estate has not yet decided which vintage will be next, but as a rule of thumb, the Riserva is only made two or maybe three times per decade. Only 5,838 bottles of this wine were produced. I'm told that the 2015, 2016 and 2017 vintages are all very strong contenders for Riserva status. In any case, this is the last Riserva to be made in Giuseppe Quintarelli's lifetime (he passed away in 2012). One of the criteria that makes a Riserva is the appassimento process that is extended by a couple of months here. This wine boasts 17% alcohol, and that enormous inner power is ultimately what drives this wine. That motor is enhanced by rich fullness, dense texture and beautifully balanced aromas of dried fruit, exotic spice, cigar box and moist potting soil. The quality of the aromas is absolutely clear and pristine, and the tannins have been softened into absolutely silkiness." (97 pts. Monica Larner, Wine Advocate #244, Aug. 2019)


    Estimate: $5,500 - $7,500.
