The reputation of the estate of Giuseppe Quintarelli is simply legendary. Their beautifully crafted wines are celebrated worldwide and naturally the Amarone gets most of the prestige. But the Valpolicella Classico Superiore deserves just as much recogntion for delivering an excellent performance at a much more attainable price than the prestigious Amarone wines. Fruit for the Valpolicella Classico Superiore is sourced from the same 11 hectares of estate vineyard as the Amarone wines, with vines planted in limestone and basalt soils and averaging 30 years old. A ripasso wine, the grapes are crushed immediately after harvest and fermented on indigenous yeast. The wine is held until February when it is racked onto the must and lees of the Amarone wines, which begins a second fermentation and the wine gains further extraction from these previously dried grapes. After completion, the wine is aged in large Slavonian oak barrels to age for seven years until bottling.
