Bottle Description

This blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese is a smooth, full-bodied cru made in an innovative ripasso style. After the harvest, the grapes from the Palazzo della Torre vineyard follow two different paths: 70% of the grapes picked are vinified immediately, and the remaining 30% are left to dry until the end of December. The fresh wine made at harvest is blended with the fermenting juice of the dried grapes, initiating a second fermentation, and rendering a more highly concentrated and complex wine. Allegrini affectionately refers to Palazzo della Torre as its “baby Amarone.” Tasting Notes: Deep ruby red in colour, this wine is brimming with notes of dark, dried cherries, blackberries and hints of dates and mocha. Food Pairing: Pairs well with full-flavoured pasta and risotto dishes, roast poultry and chorizo.
