Alzero shows Quintarelli’s prowess in producing Amarone applied to the grapes of the Cabernet family. The result is like his Amarone on steroids: the ultimate way to finish a meal, with a life as close to eternal as wine can have.

It is impossible to speak about Quintarelli without superlatives. The name itself stands for so much: the family, the wines, a style, a tradition. After all of the patience and care that go into the making of a bottle of Quintarelli, it truly does mean so much more than wine. Giuseppe, fondly known as “Bepi” to those closest to him, was a perfectionist in every way. From the handwritten labels, to the best quality cork, to the exquisite wine in bottle, the Quintarelli name is a stamp of authenticity and the ultimate indication of an artisanal wine of the highest quality. From the seductive Bianco Secco, to the exceedingly rare Bandito, the artistry and depth of the range is exceptional. A bottle of Quintarelli never disappoints!
Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
