King of western Veneto delivers. Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara blended to perfection. — 16 days ago

Giuseppe Quintarelli

Riserva Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Superiore Corvina Blend 2011

Big flavors with big alcohol (16.5%) that doesn’t show. Feels like it’s going to go sweet, but finishes dry and dusty. A pleasant puzzle. — a month ago

Cascina Degli Ulivi

Semplicemente Vino Bellotti Bianco Cortese 2022

Surprisingly complex, barnyard smell, unfiltered cider, grapefruit minerality, apple, funky. Better with food than on its own. Initial effervescence disappears quickly. Touch of honey. — 2 months ago

Monprivato di Castiglione Falletto Barolo Nebbiolo 2018

What I know about this wine is it’s huge aging potential; what I didn’t know was that their skill level is so high that even their young Barolos — if this bottle is indicative —are complete, perfectly balanced, and taste as if they are made to drink now! This wine was much more delicate, floral, Burgundian, and tea-scented than I expected compared to the other notable Barolo producers I have experienced. What a stunning introduction to this producer! — 5 days ago

2018 helped a lot with that early approachability and Burgundian sensibility. The 2013’s by contrast are still fairly locked up.


Vigna San Giuseppe Riserva Bricco Boschis Barolo Nebbiolo 2017

Delectable Wine

The 2017 Barolo Riserva Bricco Boschis Vigna San Giuseppe is redolent of dark fruits, leather, incense, tobacco, lavender and dried herbs. This strapping, muscular Barolo has a ton to offer. All it needs is to soften a bit, and whether or not that happens is something of an open question at this stage. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, November 2023)

Giuseppe Quintarelli

Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Corvina Blend 2015

Quintarelli is a legendary producer and it was very interesting to try this since I rarely would opt for a €300 Amarone. It has very unique aromatics. Medium bodied but with very intense and luscious profile on the palate. Dark fruits, tomato leaf, herbs, balsamic. Dry finish. 16,5% alcohol that is impressively integrated. — 17 days ago
