Amarone at its finest. Quintarelli's protégé comes of age - unfathomably beautiful experience

Just in - Amarone Monte Santoccio di Nicola Ferrari 2015

 

Robin's words 

"When I used to travel to Italy for a large importer of Italian wine and we’d buy old school Amarone from good producers whenever we could and drink it with lunch. Except this is even better as it’s made by the man who worked with and learned from the grand master of Amarone himself, Bepe Quintarelli, whose wines are ‘proof there is a God’ (an Italian wine expert once exclaimed to me) and whose wines are traded for several hundred dollars a bottle.

Amarone has gone through a brutalist era when it was a trend to become the absolute biggest and most concentrated, leaving behind complexity and beauty. Big scores duly came in, but you really had to drink them as a substitute for port. But to bring the flavours of this Amarone 2015, unlike any other wine, to a dining table, and truly drink it with ease - with pasta, or with a main course or light of dark meats - is a huge joy"
