Garnet red. Powerful nose, intense notes of red fruits, bitter almonds, leather, liquorice and kirsch, to name but a few. Full, explosive, warm, harmonious and balanced on the palate. Very long and persistent, hypnotic finish. An incredible depth, concentration of flavours and yet elegance: a fascinating wine!

Vinification / aging

The grapes are carefully selected at the time of harvest and are brought into a conservation room and immediately put into wooden boxes and settled on rush matting. It is essential that the grapes are positioned correctly so that the passerillage raisining can take place in a complete and natural way. The first sign of “noble rot” appears at the end of November – beginning of December and develops mostly in the month of January. At the end of January pressing begins and after about 20 days of maceration, the alcoholic fermentation begins through indigenous yeasts. Fermentation follows and lasts for 45 days. Afterwards is the racking of the future Amarone as it is put into medium - small Slavonian oak barrels, where it matures for seven years. During this period, more alcoholic fermentations take place which yields a dry wine of extraordinary structure and complexity.

History

The late, great maestro del Veneto, Giuseppe Quintarelli, managed to build his mythical and legendary estate during an amazing sixty-year career. All the tradition, love, heart and soul of making one of the world's finest wines continues at the Quintarelli house and winery in the hills north of Verona. Giuseppe's daughter Fiorenza, his son-in-law Giampaolo and his grandsons Francesco and Lorenzo all watch over the family legacy. It is impossible to talk 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 goes into making a bottle of Quintarelli, it really means so much more than just wine. Giuseppe, affectionately known as "Bepi" by those close to him, was a perfectionist in every way. From the beautiful handwritten labels to the best quality corks to the exquisite wine in the bottles, the Quintarelli name is a stamp of authenticity and the ultimate indication of artisanal, handcrafted, uncompromising wine of the highest quality. Nothing is rushed at Quintarelli. The wines take their time and get the time they need.
