Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Rich, textured, racy and complex, the ’08 Rosso del Bepi wafts from the glass in an explosion of berries, cherries, and figs, all complemented by incense, tobacco, cigar wrapper, umami and earth. This is an intense, hedonistic wine that earns the Quintarelli name--in fact, it’s so good, we don’t quite understand why the estate chose to declassify its ’08 Amarone and bottle the Rosso del Bepi instead! The late, great Quintarelli produced his rare and delicious Rosso del Bepi in only five previous vintages: 1994, 1996 1999, 2002, and 2005. A blend of 55% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, and the remainder Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc Nebbiolo, Croatina, and Sangiovese, the grapes for this wine ferment with natural yeasts for 45 days, and the wine ages in oak barrels for about seven years before bottling.
