“This red is the exception to the rule at Quintarelli. It is aged for only two to three years — as opposed to seven — and only the Cabernet is partially dried. The Corvina and Corvinone are pressed directly after harvest. The resulting Primofiore, which translates to “first flower” because it is the youngest red-wine release every year, is the freshest rosso of the bunch.” – Tom Wolf

50% Corvina and Corvinone, 50% equal;ly divided between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc

It is impossible to speak about Quintarelli without superlatives. The name itself stands for so much: the family, the wines, a style, a tradition. After all of the patience and care that go into the making of a bottle of Quintarelli, it truly does mean so much more than wine. Giuseppe, fondly known as “Bepi” to those closest to him, was a perfectionist in every way. From the handwritten labels, to the best quality cork, to the exquisite wine in bottle, the Quintarelli name is a stamp of authenticity and the ultimate indication of an artisanal wine of the highest quality. From the seductive Bianco Secco, to the exceedingly rare Bandito, the artistry and depth of the range is exceptional. A bottle of Quintarelli never disappoints!

Primofiore IGT:
• The “first flower” is the youngest red wine released by the estate every year
• Cabernet is partially dried, all other grapes are freshly pressed
• After harvest, grapes left in wooden boxes to continue ripening
• After pressing and fermentation, wine is aged for several years in Slavonian oak barrels
