Morellino di Scansano, 1978

Le Pupille - Riserva

This style of Sangiovese differs from its northern brethren due to the ripeness levels it can achieve in southern Tuscany. The result is a rounder and more savory style of wine. Regulations stipulate that at least 85% of the wine must be made from this variety, with the rest coming from other permitted Tuscan red grapes. Unlike many DOCGs, this wine does not require ageing and can be released in the March after the harvest, less than eight months later; logically, this wine is characterized by lively freshness and crisp character. Other traits come in the form of cherry, pomegranate, plum, leather, cedar and spice notes.

Quintarelli , 1978

Giuseppe Quintarelli, Reciotto della Valpolicella

"Recioto," as in "Recioto della Valpolicella," refers to a dessert wine made from grapes that were dried on mats after picking. This process turns the grapes closer to raisins, concentrating the flavours. The wines are lovely and taste how you'd expect raisins-turned-wine to taste, rich and sweet.

This 1978 wine by Giuseppe Quintarelli is one of the best Reciotos out there. You should expect an evolved nose of dried fig and prune, dried Italian herbs and some savoury notes.
On the palate, it should display a high acidity that balances the sweetness very well. The flavour intensity should be pronounced with layers and layers of red fruits, herbs and savoury character lingering on the palate.
