"Color: deep; Nose: complex; Acidity: lively; Body: medium-bodied; Overall: pleasant; Nose: wet earth with a fruity tang. tastes of raisins, cherries, well balanced with plenty of acidity to go well with medium hearty dishes. Easy to drink but not without some fare to go with. i would not recommend to be drunk without a meal."

"This wine is produced using an innovative RIPASSO method. Well-structured, smooth and rounded, this wine is characterised by a long, elegant finish. Deep ruby red in colour, it has a delicious wild berry perfume, with flavour of raisins. The grapes Corvina Veronese, Rondinella and Sangiovese from the Palazzo della Torre vineyard follow two different paths: 70 % of the grapes are vinified immediately after the harvest, the remaining percentage is dried until the end of December. At this point, the wine ferments again with the dried grapes. This wine will age easily for 8 - 10 years. Palazzo della Torre is great with a wide range of risotti (particularly with pork), mixed grilled meats, roasts and the traditional Veneto boiler meats bollito misto. Serve at 16-18 C (61-64 F) and open the bottle an hour before drinking."

"Wine Description This blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese is a smooth, full-bodied cru made in an innovative ripasso style. After the harvest, the grapes from the Palazzo della Torre vineyard follow two different paths: 70% of the grapes picked are vinified immediately, the remaining 30% are left to dry until the end of December. They are then vinified and re-fermented with the wine from the fresh grapes. Tasting Notes Dense and deep ruby red in color, Palazzo della Torre is loaded with luscious aromas of currant, blackberry and licorice. Full-bodied and rich it is a classic accompaniment to grilled or roasted meats and barbecued ribs. One of the greatest values from Winebow, Palazzo della Torre was selected by Wine Spectator as one of the “Top 100 wines of the World” for five years in a row, from 2000 to 2005. "
