When it comes to great Italian wine producers, the name Quintarelli is one of the first that comes to mind. Giuseppe Quintarelli’s fame stems from his legendary Amarone della Valpolicella, Veneto’s most emblematic wine made from partially dried grapes (a method known as ‘appassimento’). The Azienda Agrícola is located in the northern part of Verona, and whilst Giuseppe Quintarelli sadly passed away in 2012, his legacy lives on. His other wines not to be missed include: Valpolicella Classico DOC and IGP Bianco Secco, a blend of local and international white varieties.
