From the undoubted king of Valpolicella, Quintarelli's wines are some of the most fascinating of the whole Veneto. The Amarone is never heavy or overdone, it has concentrated plum and cherry fruit, but the feel is lithe and fresh, rich textured tannins give shape and mouthfeel, whilst the acidity underpins and pushes the wine forward. This has the hallmark of all fine wines in the way that it never overawes the senses and keeps drawing you back for another sip. L&S (Mar 2020)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Quintarelli

Quintarelli is without a doubt the reference point for wines from Valpolicella and the Veneto hills. In fact this historic estate makes some of the world's finest wines, hugely sought after by wine-lovers in every continent. We are delighted to be representing them now in the UK and sharing these spell-binding creations with our customers. The estate came to prominence during the 60 year career of the legendary Giuseppe 'Bepi' Quintarelli, a visionary man who must be credited with reviving this historic region through the production of his incredible wines. The mantra here is 'tradition and time'. These wines are never rushed - they are given as much time as they need in the cellars, to hit their stride, before bottling and releasing to the market. A prime example is the Valpolicella Classico - the estate's calling card - we are just shipping the 2010 vintage, the latest release, a mere 8 years on from the harvest! Most 'Classicos' are drunk a year or 2 from the harvest! In the pursuit of perfection here, the family's patience is an invaluable virtue. Old barrels, cool cellars, traditional methods, patience and soul are the keys here - and the results are extra-ordinary. Sadly the Maestro 'Bepi' passed away in 2012, but thankfully his spirit lives on and his daughter Fiorenza has taken the reins with her two sons: Francesco and Lorenzo and her husband Giampaolo. They are respecting all that the great man achieved and any tweaks are proving to be both positive and minimal thankfully - purely designed to improve the consistency of the wines and raise the profile of this incredible gem.
