Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre 2007

  • Area: Italy, Veronese
  • Grape: 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Sangiovese.
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black A- Dilettante A-
Description: About 30% of the fruit is air dried, Amarone style, giving this wine an added dimension of elegance and complexity. The nose has lovely aromas of perfume and espresso. A black licorice attack is immediately followed by elements of stewed fruit, coffee, chocolate and leather. It finishes with a rich burst of cassis. Yummy. Decant for at least 30 minutes to tame and soften any rough edges. We will revisit this one in a year or two and see how it developed.

Price: $17
