La Giaretta Amarone Classico della Valpolicella I Quadretti Docg 2016 Song: Vesti la Giubba(Ridi, Pagliaccio) by Ruggero Leoncavallo interpreted by Luciano Pavarotti. Located in the heart of Valpolicella Classica, the birthplace of the worldwide famous Amarone, La Giaretta is a boutique winery, led by Francesco Vaona, that produces high quality wines that shine for their authen5city and elegance. Amarone (the ‘big bieer’ in Venetian dialect) is now one of the most popular wines of the world, but not many people know that the story of this wine, originates from a miscalcula5on during the fermentation of the original dessert wine of the area, Recioto: Legend has it that in 1936, while tasting some barrels of Recioto lef for too long in the cellar, Mr Adelino Lucchese, winemaker of the local cooperative cellar, called this wine 'Amarone' and found out about the qualities of this great dry version of Recioto. This Amarone is obtained by an accurate selection of the best grapes from the older vines of the estate, that are lef to dry in straw mats for 120 days in the spectacular fruit barn of the winery: here is where the magic happens, when the grapes reach an incredible concentra5on of sugar and aromatic compounds, giving an incredible character to this fantas5c wine, that reminds me of the incredible voice of the Maestro Pavaro`. A bouquet that shines for intensity and for the quality of all the compounds, with an effluvium of red fruits, raisins, soaked sour cherry, potpourri, sandalwood, chocolate and black pepper, for an overall great elegance. Get ready to get the fireworks in the palate, with an explosion of red fruits and dried plum: wine is warm, broad with a firm tannin that is majestically tamed and a lingering finish. I truly believe this is one of the hidden gems(only 2500 bottles made!) among Amarone, a true champion. 1bt in shipment. Drink Through 2022-2029. Open 5h before. Price $85
