The godfathers of the Amarone are without doubt Quintarelli, the legendary Romano Dal Forno and now Garbole boutique winery. These are the undisputed toppers among the Valpolicella and Amarone wines. At Garbole wine is made in an almost manical way, where it is only about quality and not quantity. The entire process in the vineyard is completely manual and grape by grape is checked and only the top goes into their wines and the unselected grapes are used as (very expensive) fertilizer for the vineyard.

The Hatteso Amarone is made from Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara. After manual picking, the grapes are placed in small wooden crates of around 4 – 5 kg each to ensure that the grapes are not crushed. The grapes are then dried in a special room for a period of about 90-100 days. The grapes lose about 50% to 60% of their weight. So super concentrated. After that, the wine stays in new oak for 36 months and is then aged for at least 2 years in the bottle and then the wine is released sparsely and only to strictly selected sellers (such as Grandcru wines). Now we want to be careful to compare these types of top wines because they are unique, but here you can taste the style of Quintarelli and Dal Forno Romano.

The Hatteso has an intense ruby red color tending to garnet with hints of plum, cherry jam, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, almond and a hint of fresh mint. Very complex wine. Wine with body and therefore powerful but on the other hand wonderfully supple, soft, fresh and round.

97/100 points Luca Maroni
