Review: 2015 Allegrini Palazzo Della Torre Veronese IGT
Allegrini’s Palazzo Della Torre bottling is one of its budget expressions, an IGT-denominated wine made in part using the ripasso technique, in which grapes are dried before being fermented and vinified. The wine is composed of 40% corvina Veronese, 30% corvinone, 25% rondinella, and 5% sangiovese.
Somewhat soft at first, but with a tannic grip underneath, the wine melds lush blackberry and plum notes with a pinch of gritty earth, teasing out notes of cherry cola and a dusty bit of charcoal on the back end. At times alternating between notes of roasted meats and bright, fresh berries, it has a little of everything in the glass, rewarding patience and deep-dive exploration. Bonus: It’s an excellent value for the quality.
