One of Italy’s most singular and exciting whites, Quintarelli’s Bianco Secco is quintessentially Veronese, based on the region’s beguiling Garganega grape. It reaches beautiful expression here in the limestone and basalt hills around Negrar, and blended with the native Saorin it rises to even greater heights of complexity with precise aromatics, lovely texture, and unique flavor. I love its versatility at table with Italian cuisine, and it is also one of my favorite aperitivi.

For the wines that I buy I insist that the winemaker leave them whole, intact. I go into the cellars now and select specific barrels or cuvées, and I request that they be bottled without stripping them with filters or other devices. This means that many of our wines will arrive with a smudge of sediment and will throw a more important deposit as time goes by, It also means the wine will taste better.
