Quintarelli Alzero 2006
GUARANTEED BEST PROVENANCE:
IMPORTED FROM ITALY BY AIR AND STOCKED IN CALIFORNIA
We fly these precious bottles of Alzero back from our visits to the Quintarelli cantina, ensuring that these are collector-quality wines. You won’t find bottles of Quintarelli Alzero 2006 better cared for than ours.
Alzero is a dry wine made in a quasi-Amarone style, but more dry and with less residual sugar than Amarone. Produced by the Quintarelli family led by the late, great master Giuseppe Quintarelli, this unique wine shows off what can be done with Cabernet Sauvignon, Franc and Merlot in the Veneto.
This is truly a mind-blowing wine. On the palate, you experience an explosion of super-ripe blackberry, plums, black cherry and black currant, followed by chocolate and coffee, sweet tarragon and spices on a finish that relentlessly goes on and on. This is a vintage prized for its balance and aging-worthiness, and with only 3,000 bottles produced, a truly rare treat to experience.
Bottle Size: 750ml
