AG90 Masses of red and blue florals mix with hints of mint and wild berries to create a lifted and inviting bouquet on the 2013 Valpolicella Classico Superiore. It’s soft in feel and more savory than sweet, with a pure display of tart cherries and spices coasting across a core of salty acids and minerals. The 2013 has the energy to burn, remaining juicy and spry, while tapering off to wild herbal notes and sour red fruits. While I don’t see this vintage as one to forget in the cellar, there’s certainly a lot of pleasure to be found here over the short term. The Quintarelli Valpolicella is produced from half fresh-harvested and half air-dried fruit that is matured for six years in a cask prior to release.
From Vivino: Avg 4.5/5
