The Secret of Giuseppe Quintarelli's Success

"What do you think is the secret of success of your grandfather?'  I deliberately ask this targeted question. Francesco Grigoli is Giuseppe Quintarelli’s grandson; Francesco, it seems to me, has inherited his grandfather’s calm, thoughtful manner. He doesn’t answer my question, but he welcomes us, and leads us to the barrel area where we see the family’s oldest and most historical barrels, those with symbols carved into the wood: two peacocks, a cross, a bunch of grapes, a cup. Giuseppe Quintarelli is not on hand; he is very reserved, and shuns publicity".
