This unique wine is the result of cooler years, when the maestro can exhibit his skills at wringing magic from a challenging vintage. Named for the great Giuseppe “Bepi” Quintarelli, who revolutionized a region with this take on declassified Amarone. The best fruit of the vintage is dried until Christmas and then pressed in January. After 20 days of maceration and fermentation with indigenous yeast, the wine is racked and aged in Slavonian oak for a mere seven years. That’s commitment. This is worth the wait.
