Named after the great Giuseppe “Bepi” Quintarelli, who revolutionized his family domaine and the entire region in the process, “Bepi” is the name given to the estate’s declassified Amarone. It is produced from the best fruit of the vintage that is dried until Christmas and then pressed. Cooler years tend to be “Bepi” rather than Amarone years, when the maestro could show what he was capable of in a more difficult vintage. Grand finesse, impeccable balance.
