Thursday October 25th, 6-8PM
Girasole Imports invites you to experience the wines of Luca Fedrigo. This is an opportunity to taste through a portfolio which carries forward the heritage of Giuseppe Quintarelli, an icon of the wines of Valpolicella in Northern Italy, into a new generation. The wines are available on a limited basis from Girasole Imports in partnership with Luca. These are wines made from native Corvina, Molinara, Rondinella and more, using methods that produce rich, ripe, intense, and balanced reds that pair well with stewed and braised meats, roasts, game and other fall dishes.
L’Arco is a project of passion stemmed from the tutelage of the legendary Amarone producer Giuseppe Quintarelli. At the young age of 17, Luca Fedrigo began his winemaking career when Giuseppe offered him an apprenticeship and took him under his wing. After 11 years of diligent practice, and with the support of Quintarelli, Luca decided to form his own winery, L’Arco. The estate is located in the most traditional of all seven Valpolicella zones, Negrar, and is in close proximity to the Quintarelli estate. The winery’s name, which literally means “The Arch”, refers to a stone arch called “Arco di Giove” that dates back to the 16th century and can be seen from the Fedrigo family’s farmhouse. For Luca, the Arch forges a connection to the past and he hopes to inspire that same connection with each of his traditionally made wines.
We will be pouring the full line-up of L’Arco wines: Amarone Classico, Acrum, Valpolicella, Pario, Rosso Veronese, Rubeo and Zoe Recioto
