Guiseppe Quintarelli’s “Baby Amarone” Debuts! The New 2010 Rosso del Bepi!
October 22, 2019
A Note from Sergio

Giuseppe Quintarelli made wines like no one else on earth, and his wines have always left me speechless. His rocket ship Amarones and perception-altering Valpolicellas were among the wines we carried when we first opened IWM in 1999, and they are wines that continue to blow me away every time I drink one. When Giuseppe passed on in 2012, I felt sad--the wine world had lost one of its legends. But I also felt heartened. Bepi, as the people who loved him called him, had been blessed with a large, healthy, tight-knit family, and many members had learned his magic at his knee. The Master of the Veneto was gone, but his legacy would live on.

Today, I'm very proud to bring you a new release from Quintarelli, it's 2010 Rosso del Bepi, a rare release of this "insider's" wine. An IGT bottling, Quintarelli's Rosso del Bepi could be an Amarone--it was made the same way, and it aged as long as Amarone wines coming from most other estates (although not as long as Quintarelli's Amarone customarily ages)--but it didn't meet Quintarelli's ultra high standards. But make no mistake: this wine is rich, and luscious, and gorgeous. There's no 2010 Quintarelli Amarone--the estate bypassed the vintage by declassifying the wine--but this Rosso del Bepi should keep you happy. It's Quintarelli, after all, and it's incredible.

Quintarelli rarely produces its tempting and delicious Rosso del Bepi, and while under the radar, this Quintarelli bottling is a favorite among wine-lovers in the know. Layers of brambly berries, sour cherries, dried fruits, pipe tobacco, incense, loam and potpourri explode from the glass of this hedonistic wine. Deeply complex and exquisitely balanced, the Rosso del Bepi marries its chewy tannins and its vivid acidity with layers of sweet fruits and savory minerals in this weighty, satisfying wine.  Textured and complex, this wine is a fantastic testament to the kaleidoscopic texture that is the hallmark of Giuseppe Quintarelli, the Veneto’s greatest producer. more info
