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.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
