This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

1990 Quintarelli Amarone Classico Superiore

Dinner at a friend's home.

1990 Quintarelli Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Superiore - the nose was... WOW!  That 15% alcohol really shows!  It was like Cognac at first.  It got better with time, but the punch from the alcohol remains.  It was a bit raisiny, some coffee, toffee with caramel.  Strange since you just can't escape the alcohol.  It took between 2-3 hours to reach peak.  After decanting not as good as we hoped.

Bought for SGD 160.
