Drink now through 2052. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The modern history of this exceptional estate dates back to 1924, but its contemporary success is largely due to the work of Giuseppe Quintarelli who fought to follow traditional methods of winemaking while his neighbours converted to mass production techniques. His dedication to quality and attention to detail has given Quintarelli a global reputation for complex Amarone wines which are aged extensively in Slavonian oak casks.

Great care is taken in the vineyards with several passes made through the vines to ensure the fruit is harvested at optimum maturity. Their traditional-style Valpolicella wines are crafted using techniques like appassimento, a method which dries out the grapes on straw mats to concentrate the flavours in the finished wine.

Quintarelli’s classic Amarone is made in an opulent style and is only produced during the finest vintages. Widely regarded as setting the benchmark for the Amarone style, this robust red is aged in Slavonian oak casks for seven years. The result is a lusciously concentrated flavour profile with a generous full body, smooth tannins and firm structure which will respond well to further cellaring. The bold dark fruit flavours make this a great choice to drink now with hearty red meat dishes or to hold for several decades.
