    Tasting Notes

    Quintarelli's Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2013 is presented in the glass of an intense and concentrated red. Spicy notes stand out on the nose that mix with fruity and undergrowth notes. The taste is balanced with a concentrated and full-bodied sip with fine tannins.

    This red is ideal to serve with stewed, roasted and grilled red meat, game and blue cheeses.

    Processing

    After harvesting, the grapes are brought in wooden crates to the rooms used for vinification for pressing. Fermentation then starts, 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.
