Allegrini Palazzo della Torre 2000
from Veneto, Italy
Number 65 on Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2004!
"Lots of black fruit, violet and mineral character. Full-bodied, with densely packed fruit on a rounded, expanisve palate, with well-integrated tannins and a long, fruity, minerally finish. Delicious now, but should open up even more. A great value at this score."
A smooth full bodied cru. The techniques
used for this particular year's production were

December when they are vinified and then
refermented with the wine from the fresh

After reading a recommendation in a forum, I decided to take a chance on this wine. I enjoyed it so much that I bought a case for future drinking.
Aroma- subtle and haunting
Taste- seductively easy to drink; soft tanin, but long finish.
A good alternative to merlot.

We recently did an Italian wine tasting, and this was one of the best we featured. It was only beaten narrowly by a Brunello, but at 1/3 the price, a clear winner overall. You won't be disappointed.
