It is impossible to speak about Quintarelli without superlatives. The name itself stands for so much: the family, the wines, a style, a tradition, a way of doing things. After all the time, effort, patience, and care that go into the making of a bottle of Quintarelli, it truly does mean so much more than wine. Giuseppe, fondly known as “Bepi” to those closest to him, was a perfectionist in every way. From the beautiful handwritten labels, to the best possible quality cork, to the exquisite wine in the bottles, the Quintarelli name is a stamp of authenticity and the ultimate indication of an artisanal, handmade, uncompromising wine of the highest quality.
“Deep, bright red-ruby. Extremely pure aromas of raspberry, black cherry, crushed flowers, cigar wrapper and aromatic herbs. Sharply chiseled, sappy and weightless in the mouth, but with very deep, brooding flavors of raspberry, candied violet, marzipan, flint and wild herbs. Saturates the entire palate with polished tannins and creamy, concentrated ripe red and black fruit flavor, finishing long, tactile, and bracing, showcasing nearly endless perfume. It will be fun to see how this wine develops and compares with Quintarelli’s 2007 Amarone over the years; right now, it’s hard to pick a favorite.” – Ian D’Agata, May 2017
