1980 Giuseppe Quintarelli Recioto della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #1274824 Jancis Robinson

 Very tense and firm and exciting. Racy. Doesn't taste anything like 30 years old! 18.5/20 points (JR)  (5/2010)

K&L Notes

Stunning wine, made using the “ripasso” method of repassing the wine though unpressed skins of Amarone grapes from the previous vintage to add depth and complexity. Nuances of dried black fruits, chocolate, and licorice rise from the glass and echo on the palate, lingering for long moments.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
