Time seemed to stand still for a moment when I tasted this wine for the first time at dinner with the Quintarelli family. It was the result of the only time Giuseppe had ever pronounced a single lot of Amarone to be worthy of being bottled separately with a designation superior to his already exceedingly discriminating and rare Amarone Riserva (only produced every five years or so). This Selezione seems years younger than the more recent Amarone and Amarone Riserva releases. It actually seems timeless. The intensity of color, of aroma, of flavor; the persistence, the length, the complexity, the poise: it is regal in every way. Truly a wine of meditation, much like the 1997 Recioto we will soon be shipping. Just when you thought Quintarelli didn’t have another gear, he found one.
