    Description

    The Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2013 Magnum by Giuseppe Quintarelli is a red wine that was born in the fantastic territory of the classic Valpolicella. Here the vineyards are located on hilly terrains of volcanic and calcareous nature. This red is produced with Corvina, Rondinella and Cabernet grapes.

    Tasting Notes

    The color of Quintarelli's Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2013 Magnum is ruby red. While the nose opens with an intense spicy bouquet, enriched by pleasant hints of black cherry, on the palate it is intense, with a pleasantly flawless and tannic body. In the mouth it is also well balanced, with a bitter and even dry taste.

    Processing

    After the harvest, which takes place manually, the grapes are brought in wooden crates to the rooms where the pressing takes place. The fermentation then starts, which lasts 7/8 days, after which the refinement begins in Slavonian oak barrels of different capacities for 60 months. At this point the Valpolicella Classico is ready to be bottled.
