In the world of Italian wines there are very few estates and even fewer personalities whose influence can truly be considered as epochal. Giuseppe Quintarelli is undoubtedly classed as one of the top auteurs of post war Italian fine wine. Bepi, as he was known, spent over sixty years - up until his sad passing in 2012 - of skill, care, patience and uncompromising attention to detail creating the legendary wines of the estate, characteristically modern yet tied to the family’s home and history.
Quintarelli Valpolicella Classico Superiore 150cl 2012
The ‘base’ Valpolicella sees a full 7 years in large Slavonian oak casks. Dark fruits, cigar leaf, deep cherry sorbet and amazing length that lifts Valpolicella to the heights only Quintarelli would strive for.
