Grape Varieties : Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot.
Aging : 30 years average.
Vinification : Harvested before most other grapes, at the end of August and beginning of September. Careful selection of grapes during harvest. After harvest, grapes sit in wooden boxes or on rush mats. Dried grapes are pressed in mid-December.
Fermentation : Grapes are pressed and after 20 days of maceration, alcoholic fermentation begins with indigenous yeasts. Fermentation lasts approximately 50 days. Wine is then aged in French barrels for two or three years, then racked into Slavonian oak barrels for four more years. During this aging process, additional alcoholic fermentations take place.
The late, great Maestro del Veneto, Giuseppe Quintarelli, succeeded in establishing his mythical and legendary estate during an amazing sixty-year career. All of the tradition, love, heart, and soul of crafting one of the world’s finest wines continue at the Quintarelli home and winery in the hills north of Verona. Giuseppe’s daughter Fiorenza, his son-in-law Giampaolo, and his grandsons Francesco and Lorenzo are all keeping a close watch over the family’s legacy.
It is impossible to speak about Quintarelli without superlatives. The name itself stands for so much: the family, the wines, a style, a tradition, a way of doing things. After all the time, effort, patience, and care that go into the making of a bottle of Quintarelli, it truly does mean so much more than wine. Giuseppe, fondly known as “Bepi” to those closest to him, was a perfectionist in every way. From the beautiful handwritten labels, to the best possible quality cork, to the exquisite wine in the bottles, the Quintarelli name is a stamp of authenticity and the ultimate indication of an artisanal, handmade, uncompromising wine of the highest quality.
