SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

In Veronese dialect, alzero is synonymous with hill or cliff. It is precisely in these pedoclimatic conditions that the Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines that make up the Quintarelli’s Alzero blend grow, on a slope next to the winery that had always been uncultivated. However, the presence of basalt and limestone has made this soil cultivable and fertile enough to give Quintarelli's wine unique characteristics. Hundreds of bottles, which are only released in the best vintages and are very hard to come by, make this IGT red unique. After careful harvesting, the selected grapes are dried on wooden crates. This is followed by pressing, fermentation with indigenous yeasts and maceration on the skins for about 50 days. Ageing lasts 30 months in French oak and another 30 in Slavonian oak. A harmony of love, the colour impenetrable and intense, the aromas dense, closed, fruity and balsamic. A wine that is full-bodied on the palate and taut that evolves with every second it spends in the glass. A perfect combination of two internationals that goes well with meat dishes, excellent to drink on important occasions. An ideal thought for lovers of Cabernet, which needs time to give its best.

THE WINERY

Quintarelli Giuseppe

The Quintarelli winery is located not far from the centre of Cerè in the municipality of Negrar, on the Cà Paletta mountain in the province of Verona. It is located, to be precise, on the eastern side of the Negrar valley, while its vineyards face west. Its privileged position has immediately favoured wine production that is rich in character. In addition to the production of Valpolicella, Cantina Quintarelli is also and above all known for its large production of Amarone. Its work, its constant commitment and dedication to respecting the terroir and the unique timing of the wines, combined with the study of the most innovative techniques, has led this company to distinguish itself in the production of fine red wines from Veneto that tell the best of this region in every glass. The training system of the vineyards boasts two completely different methods: while in the old plantations the training system is Pergola Veronese, the Guyot method is followed in the new ones. The end result is a unique and lively product, all to be experienced. Name and address of producer/distributor: Quintarelli Giuseppe - Via Cerè, 1, 37024 Negrar (VR). Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
