"This is one of the wines that has made Allegrini famous throughout the world. 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. A small percentage of the harvested grapes are left to dry out until December and then added to the previously vinified fresh grapes. The result is a velvety, well-balanced red wine that proffers mature, pulpy fruit." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Palazzo della Torre was named after Allegrini's Villa della Torre, the historic Renaissance estate surrounded by 30-to-50-year-old vines of Corvina, Rondinella, and Sangiovese. As the most popular wine coming out of the Veronese IGT today, it features rich and elegant notes of ripe berries, plums, and mint with a subtle raisined quality reminiscent of its Valpolicella siblings. A tart burst of acidity serves as the perfect foil for the ripe fruit, and this 2012 closes with fine tannin on its long, lingering finish.
"Aromas of dried earth, dried raspberry and blueberry. Full body, chewy tannins and a fresh, bright finish. Lively and delicious. This is always a delicious blend of corvina and rondinella. Drink now." —
