Quintarelli, Giuseppe Description

Giuseppe Quintarelli is the Veneto’s most significant producer, renowned for his mythical and cellar-worthy Amarone, Recioto, and cult sensation Alzero. Indeed, in the genre of Amarone, Quintarelli’s work constitutes the original benchmark. Although his former  protégé, Romano dal Forno, has attained a similar nadir, he learned what Amarone could be through the “Master of the Veneto,” and achieved standard-bearer status through a different philosophical paradigm.Quintarelli is guided by his own traditionalist principles, not by the market. He is emphatic about the art of wine and that it cannot be manufactured in a lab. As he recently explained to Sergio, “The fundamental problem in wine today is that too many producers ‘hurry’ to make their wines: they hurry the fruit in the vineyard and they hurry the vinification and rush to bottle. They rush to sell their product without allowing it the proper time to age. Patience
