Tasting Note: The name of this wine is a tip of the hat to the famed Amarone producer Giuseppe Quintarelli, whose wines were the reference point for Len Crispino, when he decided to start the Foreign Affair, a decade ago. The grapes for this 17%+ alcohol monster were dried for 3 months before being pressed. It possesses the texture of syrup, and a sexy profile of plum, dried olives, maraschino cherries, anise, mint, milk chocolate and vanilla. Yes, the price is out of reach for most of us mere mortals, but this is a singular wine, which will continue to evolve for the next 15 to 20 years - and I have never said that about Ontario red before! Serious meditation wine here! Score - 94. (Evan Saviolidis, evanwinesavvy.com, May 2015)
