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

Corvina 70%, Rondinella 25% and Sangiovese. This wine is made in the Ripasso method with whole partially dried grapes. Deep ruby colored with moderate aromas of cheery and plum. The tannins coat the mouth nicely without lingering with moderate acidity and a long, savory finish. Great buy right now at my local Costco.

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.
