Dense and deep ruby red in color, Palazzo della Torre is loaded with luscious aromas of currant, blackberry and licorice. Full-bodied and rich it is a classic accompaniment to grilled or roasted meats and barbecued ribs.
"Allegrini's Palazzo della Torre is often an irresistibly stylish wine, as it is again in 2005. This opulent, generous red is loaded with jammy dark cherries, chocolate, spices and sweet toasted oak. Palazzo delle Torre is a blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese. A portion of the fruit for this wine (30%) is left to air-dry on racks (Amarone-style) until December, when it is fermented and subsequently added to the rest of the wine, which is fermented normally. The addition of the wine from the dried fruit gives Palazzo della Torre an uncommon level of richness, density and complexity."
"Aromas of currant and forest fruits blend with chocolaty notes, which follow through to a full-bodied palate, with ripe, chocolate-coated tannins, giving a long, tasty finish." 88 Points
