Allegrini Palazzo della Torre 2018
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
2018 Vintage Rated 93 points James Suckling A solid core of curranty fruit with smoky and spicy notes that add complexity. Full-bodied with good balance of smoky fruit and well-integrated, velvety tannins. Drive and length to this. Nicely done. Delicious now, or hold.
2018 Vintage Rated 90 points Wine Enthusiast This blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Sangiovese opens with aromas of black-skinned berries, graphite and underbrush. The savory palate offers dried black cherry, vanilla and licorice alongside polished tannins.
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 flavored 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.
