Quintarelli’s history evolved around the winery, which is located in Cerè near the village of Negrar ( near Verona ). Quintarelli’s family has lived here since 1924. Quintarelli’s father, Silvio, bought some landafter World War I and established his own estate.
Giuseppe Quintarelli started working on the estate in 1950, extended it, brought improvements in vine growing and made wines without compromise. With labour-intensive methods, he drove it to its success and established the winery as the source of the most traditional styles of Amarone, ageing it for seven years in Slavonian oak; the result is one of the most complex wines produced in Italy. Quintarelli wines are still the unmatched benchmark for Amarone.
Unfortunately, Giuseppe Quintarelli passed away in January 2012, aged 84, but his family continues to follow his vision and style.
Giuseppe’s daughter, Fiorenza, her husband, Giampaolo Grigoli, and their Francesco and Lorenzo, are currently involved in running the winery.
