Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
2007 challenged Veneto’s winemakers with tempestuous weather, and this Alzero vintage is a towering triumph. Christmas cake, crushed flower petals, pencil lead, warm cigar wrapper and earth frame the luscious red and black fruits in this majestic, caressing ’07 Alzero. At once powerful and nimble, this Alzero is a study in contrasts, a kaleidoscopic wine that suffuses the palate with a brocade-like texture and offers years of exceptional drinking pleasure. As with the estate’s Amarone, Quintarelli treats Alzero’s grapes (a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot) 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 matures in barriques, where it ages first for two or three years in French oak, followed by four years in Slavonian oak.
