Recioto della Valpolicella Classico A Roberto 2007
The Quintarelli Recioto della Valpolicella represents all of this family’s values: the love, heart and soul of those who want to make an uncompromising, artisanal wine – as its handwritten labels on fine cork suggest; so gentle and unusual, a true masterpiece.
Recioto Quintarelli was born in vineyards located in the municipality of Negrar, in the Veneto region. The harvest and selection of the grapes – mainly Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Cabernet, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and Croatina – is done exclusively, scrupulously by hand, during each phase of processing. After the harvest, the grapes are dried for about 120 days and then given ‘the time they need’ to refine, 5 or 6 years in small Slovenian oak barrels.
The result is another jewel to be tasted on important occasions, to be sipped slowly so one can appreciate all of its precious characteristics.
The colour is very intense, a garnet red with ruby reflections. Scents of black cherries are clearly distinguishable, as well as an elegant and refined sweetness that is also found on tasting, and which is further enriched by refined, spicy nuances. A velvety, elegant wine with a good, persistent tannic structure.
Recioto Giuseppe Quintarelli once again confirms the excellence of this brand.
