1995 Giuseppe Quintarelli Recioto della Valpolicella Classico

SKU #1355007 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 There’s not too much I can say about the 1995 Recioto other than it is a stunning, unforgettable wine. It explodes from the glass with an array of heady, exotic black cherries, graphite, roasted coffee beans and spices. Endowed with an almost port-like richness, it offers phenomenal concentration and depth on the palate without ever giving the impression of heaviness. It, too, is a remarkable wine in every way and is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. (AG)  (10/2007)

95 points Vinous

 Ruby-red. Pleasantly sweet nose of red cherry, espresso, milk chocolate and rose petal, with hints of peach and apricot. Remarkably fresh and lively in the mouth, with the peach and apricot notes adding another dimension to the chocolatey-ripe red fruits. A powerful yet graceful wine of uncommonly layered complexity and silky sweetness. The delicately balsamic finish goes on and on. May well be Italy's best sweet red wine. (ID)  (3/2006)

Additional Information:



- 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.
