Take Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot and pass them through the life cycle of Quintarelli’s Amarone technique, and you have a Bordeaux blend like you have never tasted before. Deep, regal, and unforgettable. Blend: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95pt
The Quintarelli Giuseppe 2012 Cabernet Alzero (packaged in a heavy glass bottle) is a stunning wine that delivers a level of cautious brawn, intensity and fruit weight that sets this wine apart within the portfolio. The blend is 40% Cabernet Franc, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot, and the grapes all undergo a few months of appassimento. I've been asked about possible perception of VA (volatile acidity) that can sometimes appear in wines made with air-dried fruit. As a much-respected Italian colleague once told me, "serve a dare spalla," ("it gives a shoulder to the wine"), and I can't help but admire the beautifully lifted and upright quality of the bouquet that appears especially radiant and buoyant in this wine. The magic, whatever it is, works.
