Giuseppe Quintarelli Alzero Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
The Giuseppe Quintarelli Alzero is 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Merlot.
Incredibly fresh and vibrant, bursting with every imaginable fruit, ripe off the tree. Drinking it is an epic voyage. The grapes all undergo a few months of appassimento, and the wine is aged in French barrels for two or three years, then racked into Slavonian oak barrels for four more years.
The late, great Maestro del Veneto, Giuseppe Quintarelli, succeeded in establishing his mythical and legendary estate during an amazing sixty-year career. All of the tradition, love, heart, and soul of crafting one of the world’s finest wines continue at the Quintarelli home and winery in the hills north of Verona. Giuseppe’s daughter Fiorenza, his son-in-law Giampaolo, and his grandsons Francesco and Lorenzo are all keeping a close watch over the family’s legacy.
