Half-Bottle of Recioto della Valpolicella, Quintarelli - 2011

Item # 28838 375mL

The Recioto of the late, great Giuseppe Quintarelli was indeed a labor of love. A rich dessert wine, similar to Port ( but not fortified), Recioto has been a revered classic through the ages. Complex, interwoven notes of dried fruit, sultanas, sweet baking spices, open in to musky leather and bitter chocolate on a silky palate. Decant and serve with a light chill with aged, melting cheeses, heavy braises or with dark chocolate cake. Quintarelli's Recioto is a mixed Corvina based recipe with Rodinella, Molinara, Negrara, Cabernet Sauvignon, Croatina, Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Pelara in the mix.

Cabernet Sauvignon

The result of an illicit affair a hundred-odd years ago between Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon today enjoys more worldwide popularity than both of its parents combined. It is the principal grape of Bordeaux, and as such has rightly earned its place among the greatest and most long-lived wines of the Old World; of course, it is also the most heralded grape of California, positioning it at the forefront of the New World wine scene as well. Today, Cabernet Sauvignon has a...
