Quintarelli’s 2003 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva does not appear to have budged much over the last few years. Still intense and tannic, the 2003 will benefit from some aeration as it is a forbidding wine. Super-ripe dark stone fruit, chocolate, leather and licorice notes abound, but as is so often the case with these wines, the whole is far greater than the sum of the parts. The 2003 has enough depth to drink well for another 15–20 years, maybe more.

Kirsch, cloves, leather and licorice are some of the many notes that emerge from Quintarelli’s 2003 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva. Dark, powerful and brooding, the Riserva is a bit less marked by the year than the straight bottling. Here it is the wine’s explosive, full-bodied finish that stands out most. This is a fascinating wine from Quintarelli. I am a bit surprised to see a Riserva in 2003, but it works, and beautifully. When they are on, these wines are utterly hypnotizing, as is the case here.
