90+ points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "Here is one of the best sellers from the Allegrini portfolio of wines. The 2015 Palazzo della Torre is a popular blend of 40% Corvina Veronese, 30% Corvinone, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese. A third of the fruit see appassimento for 90 days, and the rest is fermented as fresh grapes. The air-dried grapes are fermented in December, and the blend is made before the wine goes into neutral barrique for 15 months of aging. You get dried fruit aromas with tobacco and sweet spice. Drink: 2019-2025. (Aug 2019)"
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "[$23 list] Forest floor, mature plum, menthol and exotic spice aromas lift out of the glass. On the smooth, savory palate, fine-grained tannins wrap around dried cherry, prune and star anise. Drink through 2021. Alcohol 13.5%. (Mar 2019)"
Producer notes: "Corvina Veronese 40%, Corvinone 30%, Rondinella 25%, Sangiovese 5%. This wine is elegant and well balanced, with a good structure and aroma. Ruby red in color 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 flavored 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."
