How? Amontillado, a pipe? Impossible! And in the middle of the Carinival.
My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. But I have received a pipe of what passess for Amontillado, and I have my doubts
ugh! ugh! ugh!
It is farther on, but observe the white web-work which gleams from these cavern walls.
Here have some drink. It i will cure your cough

He meets Fortunato, who is all dressed up in jester clothes for a carnival celebration − and is already very drunk. The narrator mentions he’s found a barrel of a rare brandy called Amontillado. Fortunato expresses eager interest in verifying the wine’s authenticity.
Proceed. Herein is the Montillado. As for Luchesi...
Montresor takes Fortunato to his home, leading to his vault. He lured Fortunato into the Montresor Family Catacomb. Fortunato was intoxicated and Montresor showed concern to deceive him.
LET US BE GONE
After a draft of Medoc to fortify themselves against the damp, they pass through piled bones into the inmost part of the catacombs where they drink another draft of Medoc. Fortunato makes a strange gesture. He asks Montresor if is not a Mason. Montresor replied ironically that he is a mason.
As Fortunato stopped by a wall, Montresor quickly fetters him with chain connected to iron rings; he padlocks the chain and begins to wall the Drunken Fortunato.
He is an ignoramus
Montresor finishes the wall; finally a "sad voice" utters a laugh suggesting that a jest was made. Fortunato pleads, but Montresor mocks him.
Yes... Let us be gone.
No reply to what Montresor said. He called Fortunato, but hears only a jingling of bells as he forces the last stone into position
