2015 Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT, Veneto, Italy
Here is one of the best sellers from the Allegrini portfolio of wines. The 2015 Palazzo della Torre is a popular blend of 40% Corvina Veronese, 30% Corvinone, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese. A third of the fruit see appassimento for 90 days, and the rest is fermented as fresh grapes. The air-dried grapes are fermented in December, and the blend is made before the wine goes into neutral barrique for 15 months of aging. You get dried fruit aromas with tobacco and sweet spice. Production is large with 500,000 bottles released.
90 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Forest floor, mature plum, menthol and exotic spice aromas lift out of the glass. On the smooth, savory palate, fine-grained tannins wrap around dried cherry, prune and star anise.
