Giuseppe Quintarelli 'Ca del Merlo' 2013

Corvina /Corvinone /Rondinella /croatina 
The wine this year is produced mostly from the single plot around the winery and has a few more minor varieties as Croatina/oseleta included. In comparison to the Valpolicella proper, this initially seems to be fruitier and perhaps fuller. Dried macerated cherries on the nose, hints of leather, and spice. Very fresh and full of fruit on the palate with great power and intensity. Plums, Mulberries, and smoke,it is slightly fruitier and brighter than the Valpolicella.
