Blend: : Corvina Veronese 40%, Corvinone 30%, Rondinella 25%, Sangiovese 5%

This wine is elegant and well balanced, with a good structureand aroma. Ruby red in color with purple hues, it offers lighthints of raisins, sophisticated notes of vanilla, black pepper,cloves and cinnamon. It has a long, velvety finish and softtannins.  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 withAmatriciana and Carbonara sauces, baked lasagna, gnocchiwith gorgonzola cheese and walnuts; grilled meats and roasts.It also excels when matched with Parma ham and fine-curedZibello pork loin, as well as medium-matured cheeses,especially Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan), pecorino and Monte Veronese.  WINERY

A very spicy nose with dried blueberries, Christmas cake, blackberry pudding, tar, treacle tart, roasted herbs and balsamic. Full body, ripe and round tannins and a finish that shows real verve and life, thanks to a wave of refreshing acidity.  JAMES SUCKLING

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.  WINE ENTHUSIAST

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. Production is large with 500,000 bottles released. Rating: 90+  ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE
