TASTING NOTES

This family-run winery dates back to the start of the century, when it was founded by Silvio Quintarelli in the municipality of Marano di Valpolicella. In the 1950s, Giuseppe, the youngest of Silvio’s sons, took over the running of the company in order to continue the family’s vineyard and winery tradition. Quintarelli's Rosso Alzero is an IGT designation wine made from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. The name of this wine derives from the portion of land of the same name, located next to the winery's estate, now enhanced to create a Veneto and Italian excellence. The grapes are grown on the first hills of Negrar, where the soil is basaltic limestone and the exposure of the vineyards give the wine its distinctive organoleptic characteristics. The harvest involves a careful selection of the best bunches of grapes, which are then transferred to the fruit store and left to rest in small wooden crates and on trellises. High temperatures allow it to dry out and expel water, while maintaining a higher concentration of aromatic substances and anthocyanins. Pressing and subsequent alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts takes place at the end of December. Ageing continues for 30 months in French oak barrels, and a further 30 months in a single barrel of medium-sized Slavonian oak. Deep red in colour in the glass, Quintarelli’s Alzero Veneto IGT exudes elegant aromas of ripe fruit, wood and vanilla on the nose. The good structure allows a perfect pairing with truffle-based first courses, braised meats and game. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Quintarelli Giuseppe

The Quintarelli winery is located not far from the centre of Cerè in the municipality of Negrar, on the Cà Paletta mountain in the province of Verona. It is located, to be precise, on the eastern side of the Negrar valley, while its vineyards face west. Its privileged position has immediately favoured wine production that is rich in character. In addition to the production of Valpolicella, Cantina Quintarelli is also and above all known for its large production of Amarone. Its work, its constant commitment and dedication to respecting the terroir and the unique timing of the wines, combined with the study of the most innovative techniques, has led this company to distinguish itself in the production of fine red wines from Veneto that tell the best of this region in every glass. The training system of the vineyards boasts two completely different methods: while in the old plantations the training system is Pergola Veronese, the Guyot method is followed in the new ones. The end result is a unique and lively product, all to be experienced. Name and address of producer/distributor: Quintarelli Giuseppe - Via Cerè, 1, 37024 Negrar (VR). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
