2010 Allegrini "Palazzo della Torre" Veronese

SKU #1158082 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 Palazzo della Torre is 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese that is air-dried until December after the harvest. That brief appassimento has shaped a delicious wine with loads of cherry and dark spice. Itís a great value with the depth of concentration and length that would match a wine double this price. Drink 2013-2018. (ML)  (10/ 2013)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Made from 30% dried grapes in the Amarone method, this delicious wine is loaded with mouthwatering black cherry, carob and fig flavors, with touches of mocha and nutmeg. Itís silky smooth, with polished tannins, fresh acidity and depth that offers effortless drinkability and pleasure.  (11/ 2013)

Antonio Galloni

 The 2010 Palazzo della Torre is gorgeous. Cool veins of acidity support the dark fruit in this mineral-infused, dark beauty. Graphite, licorice, tar and black cherries are some of many nuances that flow through to the impeccable, refined finish. Once again, Allegrini's Palazzo della Torre is one of the best values in Italian wine.  (3/ 2014)

Wine Spectator

 A subtle, balanced version, with quiet accents of graphite and espresso mixing with the delicate black cherry, dried mint and smoky mineral notes. Shows light grip on the finish. Drink now through 2016. (Web-2013)

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
