This blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese is a smooth, full bodied cru made in an innovative ripasso style. After the harvest, the grapes from the Palazzo della Torre vineyard follow two different paths: 70% of the grapes picked are vinified immediately, and the remaining 30% are left to dry until the end of December. The fresh juice obtained at harvest is
blended with the juice for the dried grapes, initiating a second fermentation, and rendering a more highly concentrated and complex wine.
What Allegrini affectionately refers to as their "baby Amarone" is more approachable with its
pleasant fruity character with raisin-like
qualities. Pairs well with a wide range of first courses,
pasta and risotto dishes. Also enjoy with roasts such as veal, turkey and lamb,
as well as with grilled meats such as barbequed chicken, steak or sausages. Excellent with hard
Surprisingly more body than a Valpolicella Ripasso. Earthy and spicy, but with rich fruit. Something for everybody in this wine.
Great wine, layered, earthy, textured - delicious with food and alone - best Italian wine I've tried at this price range - highly recommended!
