White truffles, mocha, spices, incense, grilled herbs, plums and black cherries are some of the many notes that burst from the glass in the 2001 Alzero. Firm tannins provide the backbone for this striking, beautifully delineated wine. Unlike the 1997 or 2000, the 2001 is an Alzero that doesn't give up its charms too easily, instead it is a wine clearly built for the cellar. Readers will have to be patient, but those who can find the 2001 should not hesitate, as it is magnificent. Sweet floral and spiced notes resonate on the vibrant, textured finish. Alzero is Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It remains one of the truly unique wines not just of Italy, but of the world.Drink Dates: 2014-2031
