Allegrini Palazzo della Torre 2018
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Veronese|
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. This wine is a deep ruby red and easily pairs with various Italian dishes, above all risottos, especially those flavoured with saffron, porcini mushrooms and pork; classic dishes such as pasta with Amatriciana and Carbonara sauces, baked lasagna, gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese and walnuts; grilled meats and roasts.
A balanced, medium-bodied red, with flavors of ripe black cherry and black currant fruit and an aromatic overtone of melted licorice and medicinal herbs. Light tannins show on the spiced finish. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2024. 33,300 cases made, 25,000 cases imported.
