    This has plum jam, cardamom and mineral on the nose, with a hint of cedar. Medium-bodied, with spicy plum and prune flavors, a very fine texture and a tight, spicy finish. Delicious. Drink now.

    Very good wine, more complex than anticpated. Decanted for 2 hours which really opened the wine up.

    Wow, impressive wine. Raisin, black tea and some teeth-sucking tannins. Hints of overripe plum, stone, cola nut and chocolate. Half way to Amarone!

"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.
