Montressor is tired of Fortunado Insulting him so hes going to kill him without him feeling guilty and is going to try to leave no evidence that can trace back to him. Montressor finds Fortunado drunk at the Venice Festival so half of his plans are already done fortunate for montressor.
Montressor lures Fortunado into his house by asking him if he can help him taste a type of wine called "Amontillado" and check if its the rare kind. Montressor mentions luchresi another italian man that knows about wine tasting to make Fortunado jealous, and it works.
Fortunado insists that Montressor gets his help for the wine tasting instead of luchresi, so they go to the wine cellar under the ground .
Montressor gives Fortunado alot of reasons so he can save himself form his own death by asking him if he needs to go back because of the mold on the walls due to the river above them. Fortunado says no im fine you dont need to call luchresi i can do it just give me some wine so it can help my cough.
They finally get to the back of the catacombs and montressor takes his chance and hits fortunado to the ground and ties him up to the wall with a chain and shackles so this is where he makes a wall of bricks to rap fortunado .
Montressor gets away with the murder of fortunado without any guilt firing back at him. He felt he was doing a favor to his family because he killed a man that insulted him.
