Il Crinale is a family run wine producer making top quality red and white, still and sparkling wines, in the heart of the Marche region in Italy.
Since the late 70s the vineyard has been owned, managed and expanded by the Quintadamo family. For over 30 years the wine grapes have been produced and sold to important winemakers all over Italy.
As a natural bonding between the family know-how, together with the accumulated experience and the Piceno territory, a winery was inaugurated in 2006.
Every part of the wine making process takes place onsite in the “Crinale” state of the art winery.
The vineyards are tended throughout the year, each vine pruned by hand through the winter and then carefully trained, trimmed and nurtured during the summer months.
The landscape is also looked after with areas preserved for the habitat of wild flowers, insects and wildlife to balance the cultivation. In 2001 the farm became Organic Certified from the “Suolo & Salute”, one of the most important Italian organic certification bodies.
The combination of tradition and innovation is the core of “Il Crinale” family winery business.
Quiterano is made with the best grapes of Montepulciano sunny hills of Abruzzo and aged in oak barrels.
The colour is a beautiful ruby red with violet minor nuances that increasingly tend to darken with the progress of ageing.
The hints, intense and ethereal, are fruity and tend to express precious notes of ripe fruit, jam, soft fruits, visciola cherry and spices.
Quiterano taste is crispy, fruity, with hints of ripe fruits and spices. The overall taste is dry, tannic, fruity and very harmonious. Aged in oak barrels, increases its pleasant aromatic and spicy notes. The possible presence of sediments is to be considered as synonymous of authenticity.
Quiterano is a pleasant pairing with spicy cheese and roast meat.
