Cellar for up to 9 years. No need to decant before serving.

Quintarelli is widely regarded as the top winery in the Valpolicella region thanks to the vision and passion of one man, Giuseppe Quintarelli. At a time when many of his neighbours had turned to mass production methods, Giuseppe insisted on following traditional winemaking practices such as lengthy maturation periods and manual harvesting in the vineyards. In recent years this dedication has paid off and the Quintarelli family’s wines are now coveted by collectors all over the globe.

Quintarelli has also been quick to embrace innovation and new ideas, such as their Primofiore red which is composed of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon blended with local varieties Corvina and Corvinone. The wine is aged in oak barrels to integrate the components of the blend and add a touch of polish and finesse.

The nose opens with attractive notes of fresh violets, dried herbs, cassis and black cherry while the palate offers juicy dark fruit flavours and hints of cigar box, licorice and mint. The well-rounded texture and smooth tannins make this a very easy-going wine which can be paired with a variety of dishes from charcuterie and cheeses to hearty game or beef stews.
