Juicy dark fruits, bramby berries, and succulent cherries cavort on a bed of licorice, potpourri, saddle leather, incense and sweet baking spices in this supple, superb '01 Recioto. While this wine suffuses your mouth with flavors and textures, it's nonetheless remarkably nimble; there's nothing weighty about this silky, outrageously good dessert wine--it's a knockout! Quintarelli saw the challenge of making a Recioto as a labor of love; rarely produced, this bottling appears three to four times a decade because it requires thirty pounds of grapes and ten years of production to create one standard bottle. Quintarelli's hands-on selection and relentless patience in aging its Recioto separates it from others, and this sweet Recioto may just be the estate’s most age-worthy and rare find. Quintarelli typically produces fewer than 300 cases in the years that the estate makes the wine.
