    Description

    Alzero 1990
    G. Quintarelli
    Bottle (3)


    "...The amber-free color is followed by a glorious array of cedar, red and black fruits, spice, truffle, and exotic Far East spices. The wine is as young as I remember it at release, which bodes well for the 1990, an even more concentrated and impressive example. Perhaps the only way I can effectively articulate what this wine tastes like would be the following: imagine Cheval Blanc (1) picked at even higher sugars than it was in a great vintage like 1990 or 1982, (2) given more aging before release, and (3) bottled with no fining or filtration! The 1990 Alzero possesses a thick, viscous, purple color, an unctuous texture, fabulous purity, and gobs of black fruits intermingled with aromas of licorice, truffles, and roasted meats. Unbelievably rich, yet totally dry, this should prove to be one of the rarest, most provocative, and profound dry red wines to emerge from Italy." (96 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #106, Aug. 1996)
