(AG=93) Kirsch, cloves, leather and licorice are some of the many notes that emerge from QuintarelliŠ—Ès 2003 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva. Dark, powerful and brooding, the Riserva is a bit less marked by the year than the straight bottling. Here it is the wineŠ—Ès explosive, full-bodied finish that stands out most. This is a fascinating wine from Quintarelli. I am a bit surprised to see a Riserva in 2003, but it works, and beautifully. When they are on, these wines are utterly hypnotizing, as is the case here. -- Antonio Galloni
