In graceful handwritten script, a label of Quintarelli Amarone reads, “made from a selection of grapes dried in accordance with tradition.” Tradizione is taken so seriously at this estate that a bottle of Quintarelli is more than a wine from a great terroir, it’s a time capsule of the Veneto’s rich history of ancient winemaking techniques. Here on the Monte Paletta, in the heart of the Valpolicella zone, techniques like appassimento and ripasso require time, experience, and devotion to the craft.
