Powerful, bold and utterly singular, this ’04 Recioto from the late, great Giuseppe Quintarelli reflects its ideal growing season in its kaleidoscopic layers, velvety texture, and mind-blowing complexity. An intense, hedonistic red offering port-like richness that showcases roasted black cherry, cocoa, raisins, leather, coffee, spice and more, this Recioto is a dessert wine as only Quintarelli could make it. Quintarelli understood the making of 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 at least 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.
