Veneto IGT 'Alzero' 2011 (750 ml.) - Giuseppe Quintarelli

'Alzero' by Giuseppe Quintarelli is one of the best red wines in Italy and in the world, a masterpiece of the Negrar area in Veneto that comes from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. The name of this still red originates from a small portion of land, placed next to the estate of the company once ignored and then enhanced in order to create a true excellence of Venetian and Italian enology. The cultivation of the vines takes place on the first hills at about 350 meters above sea level where the calcareous basaltic soil and the exposure of the vineyards to the west give the wine its organoleptic characteristics. The refinement, which takes place in 2 phases, lasts 60 months in French and Slavonian oak barrels.

THE WINE

'Alzero' by Giuseppe Quintarelli is one of the best red wines in Italy and in the world, a masterpiece of the Negrar area in Veneto that comes from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. The name of this still red originates from a small portion of land, placed next to the estate of the company once ignored and then enhanced in order to create a true excellence of Venetian and Italian enology. The cultivation of the vines takes place on the first hills at about 350 meters above sea level where the calcareous basaltic soil and the exposure of the vineyards to the west give the wine its organoleptic characteristics. The refinement, which takes place in 2 phases, lasts 60 months in French and Slavonian oak barrels.

THE COMPANY

The name of Giuseppe Quintarelli has for years been a guiding light in Valpolicella, representing the quintessence of a territory that is rightly recognized as one of the most prestigious of Italian viticulture.
In the Negrar valley, twelve hectares of vineyards, where the autochthonous varieties of corvina, corvinone, rondinella and molinara meet, give life to about 50 thousand bottles a year. We are talking about an ancient history, started in the early 1900s with Silvio Quintarelli, then continued, from the middle of the century, in the name of tradition and the highest quality rigor with the youngest of his sons, "Bepi", today the undisputed master of 'Amarone. Born from the deepest respect for nature and a very strict selection of grapes, Quintarelli wines are wines with a capital "V", labels that contain important centuries-old skills and unique awareness, which are put into practice year after year, both in the rows as in the drying techniques and in the cellar practices. But it does not end here: those of Quintarelli are also wines that surprise for the great vitality, a characteristic that, as if that were not enough, naturally makes them ready for a very long aging, during which they improve enormously, expressing themselves for a long time even after the opening the bottle.
