Giuseppe Quintarelli Alzero Cabernet IGT 2006
  • $ 502.00
Just coming into its maturity, the ’06 Alzero is an intensely complex wine with a kaleidoscopic palate of black and red fruit, espresso, scorched earth, umami, incense and black tea, all comported on a velvety, sinuous palate. Alzero is a massive--and massively delicious--wine. Quintarelli makes it only in the very best years, solely from fruit derived from old vines, predominately Cabernet Franc, usually blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and a small percentage of Merlot. As in the estate’s Amarone, Quintarelli treats Alzero’s grapes with the appassimento technique, drying the grapes in single layers upon straw or plastic mats for 60 to 100 days to concentrate and intensify the flavor; it’s also the sole Quintarelli wine that’s aged in barriques. Production generally hovers below the 300-case mark, making allocations severely limited.
