Collectible Wines&Spirits

What are fine collectable wines?

Fine wine is the one produced in the first place by producers who pay a maniacal attention to the production of grapes, from intact bunches, even very old vineyards and very low yields, starting from the awareness that good wine is made in the vineyard: but all this is just a necessary condition in order to start creating a high quality wine. An authentic collector's wine, rather, is the one that represents the myth; desired by everyone but obtainable by few, often created with longer vinification processes compared to a normal good wine, keeping a constancy in the tradition of the winery and in the quality standard, by deciding, for example, not to produce in case of a vintage which is below expectations, which cannot respect the quality standard of the winery, as it happens for some Barolo or, for example, for Quintarelli's Amarone Classico della Valpolicella.

How to keep fine wines and distillates for collection?

Some of the rules to be followed for a distillate, and in particular for a wine, are, for example, to keep the bottle at a proper temperature, around 14° C, horizontally and in the dark; wine, in fact, in particular red wine, is very sensitive to ultraviolet light and could undergo degradation. Another aspect to be kept in mind during the storage of wine is climate: besides the suggested temperature, climate must be neither too dry, because it could have negative repercussions on cork and make wine filter or oxidize, nor too humid, because it could make illegible the label and the date, and this could cause a decrease in the value of the bottle up to 30%.
