The various wines are drawn from the across the entire vineyard, and require multiple passes at harvest time.Quintarelli also produces an Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva, which is selected from the very best barrels of the generic Amarone, as well as a very rare 'Selezione Giuseppe Quintarelli' from a particularly extraordinary barrel.
