Description

The 2005 Alzero is all about finesse. Freshly cut flowers, mint and sweet red berries are laced together in a finessed, racy Alzero loaded with class. Because of its mid-weight structure, the 2005 should drink well relatively early, although it will always have the bright, refreshing acidity of the cool vintage. The mid-weight structure makes the 2005 accessible today. Quintarelli fans should note that there will be no Amarone in 2005, only Rosso del Bepi. The 2005 is approximately 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc and 20% Merlot.
