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.

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.
