1998 Giuseppe Quintarelli Alzero Cabernet

Price: $325

Why: It's one of Italy's -- and the world's -- most compelling wines, with cedar and truffle aromas and a deep velvety texture. The rare red blend of mostly cabernet franc with some cabernet sauvignon is made Amarone-style from dried grapes by Italian maestro Giuseppe Quintarelli, and rivals Bordeaux's Cheval Blanc.
