Trek rider Arredondo narrowly held off the challenge of home hope Sergio Godoy at the end of a 166km stage between Las Chacras and Mirador del Sol en Merlo in Argentina.
The Colombian's effort took him from seventh to fourth in the general classification standings, still almost three minutes behind Quintana.
The leader finished five seconds back in third on Saturday and is 35 seconds clear of his nearest challenger, Garmin-Sharp's Philip Gaimon.
