Allegrini Palazzo della Torre 

The vineyard surrounds Villa della Torre, a splendid masterpiece of Renaissance architecture now owned by the family, and produces a full-bodied red wine that has an ageing potential of at least ten years. The blend is the historic combination of Corvina and Rondinella with the addition of a small quantity of Sangiovese.

Tasting Notes 

The fresh juice obtained at harvest is blended with the juice from the dried grapes, initiating a second fermentation, rendering a more highly concentrated and complex wine. What we like to refer to as our ""baby Amarone"" is more approachable with its pleasant and fruity character with raisin-like qualities.

Deep, ruby red in colour, with intense perfumes of cherry-chocolate on the nose. On the palate, the wine has good depth and power, with a hint of dried cherries from the 'ripasso' vinification. Smooth and full bodied, with a rounder style, lower acidity and fuller structure than a Valpolicella Classico.

Grape variety: 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella & 5% Molinara.

Best served with: Pairs well with a wide range of first courses, including full-flavored pasta and risotto dishes. Also enjoy with roasts such as veal, turkey and lamb, as well as with grilled meats such as barbequed chicken, steak or sausages. Excellent with mushrooms, baked lasagna and hard and semi-hard cheeses.

Serving temperature: For a maximum expression of fruit and flavor, serve at 18ºC in large red wine glasses.
