Allegrini Palazzo della Torre 750ML 2010      
Sku: 13434

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: while 70% of the grapes are vinified immediately after the harvest, the remaining percentage is dried until the end of December. At this point, the wine ferments again with the dried grapes. This wine will age easily for 8-10 years. Deep ruby red in color, it has a delicious red berry perfume, with hints of raisins and plums.

Wine maker notes
Palazzo della Torre has a particular structure and aromatic qualities, combined with an elegant and harmonious personality. A complex wine with pleasant raisined nuances and a lengthy, lingering finish. This wine has an aging potential of 8-10 years. It pairs well with a wide range of Italian cuisine, such as pasta and risottos made with full-flavoured, spicy sauces and white and red meats, roasted or grilled. Also perfect with cold cuts and mediummatured cheeses.
