The 2014 Valpolicella Superiore Classico is pretty and understated with nuances of strawberry, hints of white smoke and dusty rose. This is lean in feel yet cool-toned and lifted, with mineral-tinged wild berry fruits and a savory herbal streak that saturates the palate. It tapers off long and almost salty, with violet and lavender tones that linger. The 2014 is a less powerful yet very pretty version of Quintarelli Valpolicella. It was tasted twice, once from a fresh bottle and then tasted from a bottle that was opened three days prior. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

I understand the hype. Interested to see how this continues to open up because even 1/2 hour made a big change. Every type and state of cherry you can imagine and about a 2.5 minute finish on it. Not memory making because of the complexity but rather just the overall execution; amazing that this is 9 years old and tastes this fresh, incredibly linear without being boring it is so well focused, and more impactful than most Amarone wines as far as structure goes
