Natalie Maclean: 94/100

“Mr. Quintarelli’s wines inspired passions far beyond any other producer’s in the Veneto, and like few others in Italy. In an era that emphasized mass production over attention to detail, Mr. Quintarelli sought to make wines without compromise.”

Professional reviews:

Natalie Maclean: “A towering, blockbuster Italian red wine. Rich black cherry liqueur and dark spice aromas with layers of full-bodied goodness on the palate. A long, lasting finish. Taste to see what a decade of patience yields in the glass. Benchmark Veneto red wine. Pair with prime rib. A huge Italian red wine blend meant for hearty meat dishes and conversation.” 94/100 pts

New York Times: “Mr. Quintarelli’s wines inspired passions far beyond any other producer’s in the Veneto, and like few others in Italy. In an era that emphasized mass production over attention to detail, Mr. Quintarelli sought to make wines without compromise. If that meant cutting grape yields far below other producers, employing painstakingly labor-intensive practices in the vineyards or the cellar, being patient enough to age wines for uncommonly long periods before selling them and charging prices well beyond those of other producers, he accepted that.”
