Ripe fruit, with amazing body. This a wine that pairs perfectly with prince. Luscious, shiny, deep and philosophical. What I want out of life, thus wine fulfills, for the time being. 2011.

I haven't enjoyed a wine so much in awhile. Dried fruit and tea leaves. Not as concentrated as most ripassos. Pairs perfectly with Parmiggiano reggiano and onion balsamic spread. A great value

The 2011 Palazzo della Torre is loaded with roasted figs (is this because I was just roasting figs? Maybe.) and sun baked plums. There is too, a beautiful earthy note, like dust in high summer, that echoes on the palate, lending complexity to high acidity and firm, ripe tannin along with an appealing touch of underbrush growing along a stony, arid hillside. Dried herbs on the finish and a touch of anise. Thyme, oregano. Definitely a food wine. Sample

Nice value predominately corvina blend with some amarone techniques used in drying out about 25% of the grapes in the blend before pressing and adding to the original juice. Rich red fruit with mocha hints. Medium bodied and well balanced. High QPR and fairly available.

What a wonderful color, Dark, dirty ruby with a burgundy rim.

Pleasant on the nose, yet simple, with blackberries, blueberries, raisins, sweet cherries, prunes, grape juice, light oak, licorice, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity, long legs and nicely balanced.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, figs, cherries, raisins, black currants, oak, vanilla, earth, licorice and peppercorn.

Long finish with round, smooth tannins and tangy strawberries at the very end.

This is nice Italian Red with a Nice mouth feel. Not too complex, but interesting enough to have by itself.

The grapes that are used here are Corvina and Rondinella. This is a special process that includes drying a small part of the blend for 4 months and then added back to the original batch. This now goes through a second fermentation, and aged in oak barrels.

I Paired it with bruschetta. Very tasty.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

The 2010 Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre is a blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella, and 5% Sangiovese. 30% of the harvested grapes are air-dried in a Ripasso-style, and are later incorporated into the newly vinified wine. It is this process that gives Palazzo Della Torre its signature style—full body and decadent, concentrated notes of dried figs, cherry skins, and Italian plum. In addition, smoldering notes of baked earth, fresh bark, tar and tobacco. A stunning value for around $20.00. 13.85% ABV
