A pretty and balanced Amarone, with plum and cherry aromas and hints of red licorice. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a delicious, fruity finish. Lots of finesse. Estimated price. Drink now. 1,000 cases made.

drank at Zibbibo in Florence. Very powerful and incredibly big and smooth at the same time, but very sweet on the attack. It may need more time to aerate as it became more even as the bottle was consumed. Its easy to see why people see this wine as so exceptional, but the sweetness put us off.

About This Producer


"Valpolicella's magician." "The master of the Veneto." "The patriarch of Amarone." "The traditionalist." Not bad for a winemaker who simply follows the winemaking customs of his forefathers. Giuseppe Quintarelli's hand-written labels are easy to recognize and his wines fit the idiosyncratic style. Since 1924, his family has made wine from grapes grown on steep slopes on the outskirts of Negrar. For his highly-regarded Amarone, he still dries the grapes in an attic room, ages the wine for years in large Slavenian casks, and holds the wines from release until he is sure of their readiness. His magic has worked, as he has turned some of Veneto's most traditional wines into luxury icons.
