Reviews 96 points Wine Advocate "The 2000 Alzero wafts from the glass with an intriguing melange of white and black truffles, roasted coffee beans, wild herbs, blackberries and new saddle leather. This intriguing, beguiling wine captures the essence of the 2000 vintage at Quintarelli. Layers of radiant, perfumed fruit flow effortlessly to the round, polished finish. (AG)"
About Giuseppe Quintarelli
That said, Guiseppe Quintarelli, or “The Father of Amarone,” is more than one man, and the name stands for many things. From multiple passes in the vineyard to pick at perfect ripeness, to drying the grapes on straw mats, to handwritten labels, to the wine in the bottle, Quintarelli is the benchmark for soulful Amarone. This Domaine represents wines of the highest quality, tradition, patience, perfectionism, and, most importantly, family.
The legacy of the family estate in the heart of Valpolicella is under the watchful eyes of Guiseppe’s daughter Fiorenza, his son-in-law Giampaolo, and his grandsons Francesco and Lorenzo. They continue to carry on the traditions of the great Guisseppe with wines that are intensely aromatic, deeply complex, and extraordinarily refined.
