Named for the legendary Giuseppe 'Bepi' Quintarelli, this wine is a tribute to his legacy as 'the Maestro of Amarone'. It is made from the best fruit of the vintage that is dried until Christmas, and then pressed. The cooler years are known as 'Bepi' rather than Amarone years, when the Maestro could demonstrate what he was capable of in a more challenging vintage. To remain true to the quality standard set by 'Bepi', in poor years, the winery doesn't produce either wine.
The blend consists of 55% Corvina and Corvinone, 30% Rondinella, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Nebbiolo, Croatina, Sangiovese. The nose exudes exotic sweet spice potpourri, dried and fresh red fruit notes. The palate is powerful and rich, with crushed bitter chocolate notes, dark red fruit, and a pomegranate /orange peel note. A fine mineral and tannin line gives the wine structure and even though this is a big wine, it is always elegant.
