Quintarelli Bianco Secco IGT
Availability: In Stock
Excluding GST: S$70.00
The estate of Giuseppe Quintarelli, the Veneto’s most important producer, has received justifiable renown for its near-mythical Amarone, Recioto and the cult wine, Alzero. Although other producers like Romano dal Forno, who was Giuseppe Quintarelli’s protégée, make fine Amarones, Quintarelli Amarone is inarguably the benchmark for the wine. The namesake and the touchstone for the estate, Giuseppe or “Beppe” Quintarelli established the standard for other Veneto reds, including Recioto and Valpolicella Superiore. Giuseppe Quintarelli died in January 2012 at the age of 84; his estate continues on in the hands of his wife and children, who learned winemaking from the man known as “The Master of the Veneto.” A perfectionist who practiced rigorous grape selection, Quintarelli released his wines to market only when he deemed them ready— often many years after his fellow Veneto producers.
The 2019 Bianco Secco lifts up with a rich and alluring display of musky dried peach, apricots, honeyed florals and hints of sweet cream. It’s soft and round in texture yet not weighty; instead, it’s energized by vibrant acids and minerals, while showing ripe orchard fruits and hints of mint. Notes of fresh apple, geranium and pretty inner florals linger long through the refreshing finale. The Bianco Secco is a blend of 80% Garganega, 10% Trebbiano Toscano, 5% Sauvignon, 3% Chardonnay and 2% Saorin. - Vinous (2019 vintage)
