Quintarelli

Quintarelli has long been regarded as the quintessential producer of the Veneto, paradoxically for both traditional and experimental wines. That's because Giuseppe (Bepi) Quintarelli was on a ceaseless quest for quality, however it might be achieved.


In his fascinating interview with Levi Dalton on "I'll Drink to That," restaurateur Danny Meyer recalls how the maestro couldn't hold back from explaining what was wrong with each of his masterpieces as they were tasted. That sort of relentless need for improvement and uncompromising honesty sparkle in his wines, and each one is a rare, delicious, and profoundly satisfying experience.


In the years since his death, Bepi's family has maintained the traditions handed down to him by his father and grandfather, continuing to turn out wines that manage that rare magic of being profoundly deep and yet ethereal, of having structure and very long lives as well as elegance and grace from the time of their release.
