Quintarelli's Valpolicella Classico Superiore presents itself, from the very first moments, as a red with great completeness of taste, and with an excellently developed olfactory spectrum. In fact, nothing is out of place in this bottle signed by Quintarelli, a production reality that, for all enthusiasts, embodies the best of what Valpolicella can offer. It is in fact a winery founded in the early 1900s, which revolutionized the way of making wine in Veneto, and which has been a source of inspiration for many winemakers in the area with its products. Just like this Valpolicella Classico Superiore, a blend where autochthonous and international vines blend into a single soul made of elegance and personality.

The Valpolicella Classico Superiore is made by the Quintarelli winery combining three red grape varieties, where, alongside Corvina and Rondinella, we find an international variety, Cabernet. The grapes, once harvested during the harvest phase, are brought in wooden crates to the rooms used for vinification for pressing. Fermentation then begins, thanks to the presence of indigenous yeasts, which lasts for a period of 7-8 days. Refinement follows, carried out in Slavonian oak barrels of different capacities for 60 months, at the end of which the wine is ready to be bottled.

This Valpolicella Classico Superiore wine manifests itself to the eye with an intense and concentrated color, not very penetrable, which recalls the hue of dark ruby. The olfactory spectrum opens on spicy notes, which slowly reveal fruity and undergrowth notes. On the palate it is full-bodied, balanced, with a concentrated sip in which the tannic component is particularly fine. A label with which the Quintarelli winery continues a story of success and prestige, which claims it as an undisputed reference point for the whole of Valpolicella.
