Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT 2013

Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT 2013

A perennial favorite, the 2013 Allegrini Palazzo della Torre is nicely concentrated and magenta-hued, due in part to a small fraction of grapes dried ripasso-style blended in post-fermentation—an addition that lends both satiny texture and richness. Layered aromas of plums and cherry skins, leather, earth, tobacco, mint and dark chocolate shavings lead in to a wine with no hard edges. The tannins are mouth coating and fine along with moderate acidity and a long, savory finish. A great food wine. 13.8% ABV | Sample Allegrini Azienda Agricola 9.0 Points...

Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT 2011

Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT 2011

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 Allegrini Azienda Agricola 9.0 Points...

Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT 2010

Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT 2010

Always a great value, the Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre is a wine to buy for sheer drinking pleasure. In the glass, it's inky and dioxazine purple-hued, due in part to a small fraction of grapes dried ripasso-style blended in post-fermentation—an addition that lends both satiny texture and richness. On the nose, black cherries, blackberry cobbler, sweet tobacco, black licorice, and campfire smoke lead to a wine that is smooth and plump, with ultra-ripe tannins, and a fine, savory finish. 13.8% ABV | Sample Allegrini Azienda Agricola 9.1 Points...
