Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

Aged in botte grande for six years, the 2003 Valpolicella Classico Superiore shows delicate tones of tiny berry fruit, balsam herb, root beer, dried sage and crushed white pepper. It shows the best of this legendary artisan producer. In the mouth, the wine is nuanced and elegant with a fine and extremely polished feel. Tiny parts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, Croatina and Sangiovese make their way into the blend. Drink 2014-2022.

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.
