Heiner Lobenberg über:
Amarone Classico 2007


Lobenberg: Traditioneller geht Amarone nicht mehr. Giuseppe Quintarelli, der Lehrmeister von Romano dal Forno, liefert hier einen perfekten Amarone. Nach vieljähriger Reifezeit im Faß und in der Flasche kommt das Konzentrat auf den Markt. Extrem vielschichtig, dicht, komplex. Getrocknete Datteln, Haselnüsse, Rosen und Rosinen. Immer neue Eindrücke überwältigen mit zartester Süße. Ganz warm. Eine andere Dimension eben. Ein Genuss für Extremtrinker. 97-99/100


Galloni über: Amarone Classico

-- Galloni: The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella is a real stunner. Rich, seductive and generous, the 2007 captures all of the intensity of the year. Wild red cherry, licorice, menthol, spice, vanillin seem to envelop every corner of the palate. Sumptuous and yet very much classic in its weight and feel, 2007 Amarone is a winner. The 2007 can be enjoyed now, but it also has enough stuffing to drink well for many years to come, although it will likely not be as long-lived as some other recent vintages. I doubt that will be a concern for most readers. This is a fabulous wine by any measure. A 2007 Riserva, as well as Alzero, will follow. 96/100


Parker über: Amarone Classico

-- Parker: The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico was bottled seven months before I tasted it. Grapes undergo a four-month appassimento for extra concentration and intensity. Despite this heavy-handed winemaking technique (in which the clusters lose up to 30% of their water mass in the air-drying process), this is a surprisingly delicate and nuanced wine. The aging process has definitely broken down and assimilated any of the hard edges that come from dried grapes. In its wake, the wine is polished and tight with a long, silky texture. 96/100


Winespectator über: Amarone Classico

-- Winespectator: This finely tuned version hits a sweet spot, offering an integration of creamy tannins, lightly juicy acidity and an ample range of flavor, with baked currant, rich, smoky mineral and wild herb notes. 95/100

Giuseppe Quintarelli

Ein kleines Weingut im Valpolicella. Kaum zu finden auf den Landkarten. Die kleinen, engen Straßen schlängeln sich durch das ländliche Gebiet. Nur ein altes, rostiges Schild verweist auf Quintarelli.
