Wine Spectator: "This well-balanced red is medium-bodied and fresh, with citrus peel acidity, offering a pleasing range of crushed black cherry and spicy mineral notes, with delicate hints of black licorice and thyme. Light, dusty tannins firm the finish. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2026." Jun 2021
Winery: "This wine is elegant and well balanced, with a good structure and aroma. Ruby red in colour with purple hues, it offers light hints of raisins, sophisticated notes of vanilla, black pepper, cloves and cinnamon. It has a long, velvety finish and soft tannins.
Palazzo della Torre easily pairs with various Italian dishes, above all risottos, especially those flavoured with saffron, porcini mushrooms and pork; classic dishes such as pasta with Amatriciana and Carbonara sauces, baked lasagna, gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese and walnuts; grilled meats and roasts. It also excels when matched with Parma ham and fine-cured Zibello pork loin, as well as medium-matured cheeses, especially Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan), pecorino and Monte Veronese. The delightful aroma of raisined grapes is enhanced if the wine is served at 18°C (64.4°F) in a large wine glass."
Palazzo della Torre: "This is one of the wines that has made Allegrini famous throughout the world. The vineyard surrounds Villa della Torre, a splendid masterpiece of Renaissance architecture now owned by the family, and produces a full-bodied red wine that has an ageing potential of at least ten years. The blend is the historic combination of Corvina, Corvinone and Rondinella with the addition of a small quantity of Sangiovese. A small percentage of the harvested Corvinone is left to dry until December and then added to the previously vinified fresh grapes. The result is a velvety, well-balanced red wine that proffers mature, pulpy fruit."
