Earlier this month we were truly honoured to be invited to the legendary cellars of Quintarelli in Italy. Since its birth in 1924 the winery has claimed iconic status in the world of fine wine – and we were subsequently ecstatic when they offered us a select range of some of their finest recent efforts, which have been slowly maturing in the very cellars we visited.


Quintarelli crafts some of the greatest wine made in Italy. It is a winery where care, effort and patience are the driving philosophies and the wines are only released once deemed to be ready. The benefits for the buyer are immense; beautiful handmade wines that are both immediately rewarding and capable of extended cellaring. For Galloni they are "hypnotic, life-changing wines" from an estate that "inhabits a universe all on its own".


The Amarone is so highly regarded and made in such small quantities that it has reached near mythical status amongst Italian wine connoisseurs. Only around 750 cases make up a typical release and the Riserva’s miniscule 200 cases makes it rarer still. They are deep, concentrated, opulent and outright amazing expressions of this unique style of winemaking.
