Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Opulent, super-ripe red and black fruits dance with underbrush, grilled herbs, menthol, white truffles, spice and warm saddle leather in the unabashedly sexy 2000 Alzero. This is a fleshy, full-bodied Alzero bottling, but for all its heft, the wine feels supple, like weighty silk. This wine matches its complex notes with polished, fine-grained tannins, and its finish seems to linger for minutes. Quintarelli makes Alzero only in the very best years, solely from fruit derived from old vines; this blend of 40% each Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, the remainder Merlot, receives the same appassimento technique as the estate’s Amarone. Quintarelli dries the grapes in single layers upon straw or plastic mats for 60 to 100 days to concentrate and intensify the flavor; after fermentation, this wine ages in barrique for two to three years, followed by four years in Slavonian oak barrels. Production generally hovers below the 300-case mark, making allocations severely limited.
