The late, great Giuseppe Quintarelli, succeeded in establishing his mythical and legendary estate during an amazing sixty-year career. Quintarelli’s wines express the tradition, love, heart, and soul of the terroir in the hills of Verona. Giuseppe’s daughter Fiorenza, his son-in-law Giampaolo, and his grandsons Francesco and Lorenzo are all keeping a close watch over the family’s legacy and to this day, Giuseppe Quintarelli remains one of the icons of Italy. The wines are released only when deemed ready, not a moment sooner.

Tasting Notes

Dark fruit, spice, leather on the nose and palate.  Vibrant fruit concentration and plush velvety tannins on a long pleasing finish. 


A blend of the three classic Valpolicella grapes; Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. The grapes are hand harvested and and pressed immediately afterwards. A 3-4 day maceration and fermentation starts with indigenous yeasts. The wine is racked and then sits until February. The wine is then racked onto the lees of grapes used for Amarone which starts a second fermentation (the ripasso process). After this fermentation, the wine is racked into large Slavonian oak barrels to develop for seven years.

    Shared a bottle of the 2010, hands down the best wine I’ve ever tasted. Well worth the price tag.
