Montresor, the protagonist, relates an incident which happened fifty years earlier. He states that Fortunato, the antagonist and fellow wine connoisseur, insulted him, and therefore, according to his family's motto, must be avenged. Montresor uses their shared interest in wine to lure Fortunato into the catacombs beneath the Montresor family home under the pretense of sampling from a cask of Amontillado, an extremely rare wine. The suggestion of consulting Lucresi, another wine connisseur, is also used by Montresor as bait to draw Fortunato into the trap. Because of his hubris, or excessive pride, Fortunato falls for the trick and continues further into the catacombs in search of the Amontillado. Eventually the men come to a large recess in a granite wall, where Montresor chains Fortunato to the wall and proceeds to brick up the wall, sealing Fortunato in and causing him to suffocate. Thus Montresor avenges his insult.
