The story, set in an unnamed Italian city at carnival time in an unspecified year, is about a man taking fatal revenge on a friend who, he believes, has insulted him. Like several of Poe's stories, and in keeping with the 19th-century fascination with the subject, the narrative revolves around a person being buried alive — in this case, by immurement. The story's narrator, Montresor, tells an unspecified person, who knows him very well, of the day he took his revenge on Fortunato Italian for "the fortunate one" , a fellow nobleman. Angry over numerous injuries and some unspecified insult, Montresor plots to murder his "friend" during Carnival , while the man is drunk, dizzy, and wearing a jester 's motley. Montresor lures Fortunato into a private wine-tasting excursion by telling him he has obtained a pipe about gallons,  litres of what he believes to be a rare vintage of Amontillado. He proposes obtaining confirmation of the pipe's contents by inviting a fellow wine aficionado, Luchesi, for a private tasting.

I said to him -- "My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. How remarkably well you are looking to-day! But I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado, and I have my doubts. Lawrence, D. Una injuria queda sin reparar cuando su justo castigo perjudica al vengador. It must be understood that neither by word nor deed had I given Fortunato cause to doubt my good will. I continued as was my wont, to smile in his face, and he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.
