Many consider Quintarelli the best producer of Amarone della Valpolicella in Italy. Owner Giuseppe Quintarelli has been in charge since the mid 1950s and is one of the most traditional Amarone producers, ageing his wines for seven years in Slavonian oak "botti". Decanter describes Quintarelli as "the true soul of Amarone della Valpolicella".
A myriad of dried cherries, plums, tea leaves, earthiness, spices, smoke and herbs in a deceptively medium-bodied style bursting with flavor. Constantly changing in the glass, this is a sensual wine of contrasts; it is sweet yet dry, rustic yet incredibly elegant, all at the same time.
