    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby-red in color, this wine is brimming with notes of dark, dried cherries, blackberries and hints of dates and mocha. Pairs well with full-flavored pasta and risotto dishes, roast poultry and chorizo. Also excellent with hard and semi-hard cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Enticing scents of chocolate, espresso, dark fruit, licorice and new leather emerge from the boisterous 2007 Palazzo della Torre. The fruit is sumptuous as always, but in 2007 Palazzo della Torre is not quite as approachable upon release as it usually is. Another year or two in bottle should help smooth some of the slightly rough edges that are present today. There is enough balance and elegance in the finish to suggest this will drink well for a number of years. Palazzo della Torre is made from 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese, all traditional Veneto grapes. Approximately 30% of the fruit is air-dried, Amarone-style. The fermenting juice from those grapes is added to the rest of the juice to give the wine an extra dimension of richness and body. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.

    Me gusta! Translation: I it a lot. This wine has a terrific richness that comes from the unique way that it was made. Allegrini blends in a bit of fruit that that was air dried prior to fermentation. That process concentrates the sugars and that, in turn, lends rich, dark fruit flavors to the wine.

    This is just special - rich and strong, but with a nice subtlety underneath.

    We tasted this wine today and it was very good at a very reasonable price. This would be great to have with pasta for certain! But today I had it with an oreo cookie! Not bad!
