It’s opulent, intense, and only made in exceptional years. Quintarelli’s Amarone is one of the most-coveted, highest-regarded dry red wines on the planet.Incredible care is taken at every turn: from harvest, to the painstaking drying of the precious fruit, to the press and eventual long ageing (at least seven years in casks, often longer) of this revered Valpolicella.
Long the brainchild of the late ‘Master of Veneto’ Giuseppe Quintarell (last vintage 2011), this top-tier wine from one of the world’s most illustrious estates is released in numbers far below the inevitable demand. A must-have for hedonists and collectors alike.
Located in the heart of the Valpolicella district of Veneto, Quintarelli is a renowned family wine estate with a near cult-like status. Founder and patriarch the late Giuseppe Quintarelli was known as the ‘Master of the Veneto’. He built his reputation by crafting small quantities of top quality wine made to the highest standards of perfection and released only when ready to drink. Since his death in 2012, the family continue to carry on his remarkable legacy. The grapes are meticulously selected in the vineyards often requiring many passes to obtain only the best, perfectly ripened fruit. Quintarelli wines are always small in allocation, high in demand, expensive but always an exceptional experience. The estate produces an array of top-tier wines including the Bianco Secco IGT, Primofiore IGT, Valpolicella Superiore, Rosso Ca del Merlo, Recioto della Valpolicella, and an Amarone della Valpolicella widely considered to be the very best in the region.
