This wine always provides the benchmark, the standard by which all Quintarelli wines and other producers in the region are measured. It is the one wine you must taste to truly understand the potential of both this legendary producer and the beautiful Veronese hills. This vintage has given us a vino with impeccable delineation, depth, style, and composure. A truly classic, timeless Quintarelli Amarone.—Dixon Brooke

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!
There is so much contained in a glass of good wine, It is a gift of nature that tastes of man's foibles, his sense of the beautiful, his idealism and virtuosity.
