Comes out of the gate swinging with closely interwoven fruit and spice, clay and wet earth. As it rolls along in the decanter(so hard to give it the time it deserves!) it starts to reveal some of its maturity - worn leather, cedar, warm hearth and incomprehensible lovely woods. Maybe hickory, cedar and smokey charged oak. At times it's smoked tomato and juicy beautiful barbecue. Had we granted the bottle the time, the story would have continued, perhaps forever. A whiff of VA was actually in balance and didn't offend me, with all the dried flowers and dessicated fruit leathers, all was welcome. A bottle of art, paired nicely with a rich pasta Alfredo. Age shown nicely, acidity still strong though I wouldn't wait too much more than a few more years. Thank you, Giuseppe. A story in every glass.

Try to catch up on a big backlog...
This was a nice Veneto piece (not that Bepi ever sucks). Kind of like a Valpolicella Ripasso with a Bdx Adrenalin shot. Still pimping purity and expression, but with just that little bit of added depth and tannin. And super affordable for a Quintarelli. Perfetto with Osso Bucco.

Chocolate notes, fruity (cherry) smooth finish.
Differently likeable
