A typical wine from this exceptional, Italian domain.  More info

Domain Giuseppe Quintarelli is an Italian reference based near Verona in the north of the country. The vines are grown in the hills of Negrar, where the climate is continental and the terroir is rich in chalk. Rosso del bepu is a Veneto made rom 55% Corvina, 30% Rondinella and 15% Cabernet sauvignon. The grapes are picked by hand and sorted before a 45-day fermentation. The juice macerates with the grape skins for 20 years. There is then a 7-year maturation in large, oak casks.
This cuvée has a deep, ruby colour in the glass, and its nose gives off aromas of cherry, candied fruit, tobacco, and liquorice. The palate is supple and velvety with a beautiful tannic structure and persistent length. You can easily keep this wine for a few years in the cellar. Serve it at 16-18°C alongside a dish like grilled duck, veal, or mushroom risotto.

IGT Veneto Rosso del Bepi Giuseppe Quintarelli serve at a temperature of 15°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Civet de canard, Coeur de veau, Risotto aux bolets.

Information about domain Giuseppe Quintarelli

Giuseppe Quintarelli is considered to be quite simply a legend of Italian viticulture, notably of Amarone, a globally-renowned Venetian wine. He unfortunately passed away in 2012, having spent many years managing his 12-hectare domain in the northern hills of Verona at the heart of the Valpolicella appellation. A perfectionist, this wine maker made a name for himself with his Amarone della Valpolicella Classico and his Recioto, selling his cuvées only after many years of ageing. Giuseppe’s daughter Fiorenza took up the domain with her husband and two children, Francesco and Lorenzo, and a team of four works at the domain throughout the year.
The viticulture at the domain is traditional, inspired by ancestral practices. The vines are treated only when necessary (when it rains, for example), and no herbicides are used. The yields are kept to a minimum with rigorous pruning and green harvests. The grapes are picked by hand before being dried for 4 months (when destined to become Amarone). The winery has been modernised to improve the quality of the wine even further. An exceptional domain.
