[Had with dinner out.] Wonderfully dry, balanced well with fruit. Has a lightness like many other italian wines, but not without substance and body. I will look for this in the stores for another taste.

A great bargain for an average retail under $20. Corvina, Rondinella and a touch of Sangiovese, 30% of the grapes are held back, dried, and vinified seperately, then added back to the base wine in the style of Amarone. Plummy blackfruit, leather and spice with a long and glorious finish.

Surprisingly more body than a Valpolicella Ripasso. Earthy and spicy, but with rich fruit. Something for everybody in this wine.

Supple in the mouth, elegantly structured, light but luscious fruit, hints of mocha and licorice. Try with roasted radicchio drizzled with aged balsamic vinegar.

Pleasant nose (showing more flowers than fruit); smooth and round -- medium body with layers of berries and tree fruit. Soft finish. Excellent with aged cheese.

90 Points - Wine Advocate The 2006 Palazzo della Torre comes across as somewhat restrained for this wine. This is a very polished, elegant Palazzo della Torre with pretty layers of mocha, spices and new leather that add complexity to the fresh, vibrant fruit. Palazzo della Torre is 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese. The addition of 30% dried fruit (Amarone style) adds an extra dimension of complexity. The retro 1970's label is also quite attractive. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2016. -Wine Advocate # 184, Aug 2009, Antonio Galloni

90 Points - The Wine Advocate"Enticing scents of chocolate, espresso, dark fruit, licorice and new leather emerge from the boisterous 2007 Palazzo della Torre. The fruit is sumptuous as always, but in 2007 Palazzo della Torre is not quite as approachable upon release as it usually is. Another year or two in bottle should help smooth some of the slightly rough edges that are present today. There is enough balance and elegance in the finish to suggest this will drink well for a number of years. Palazzo della Torre is made from 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese, all traditional Veneto grapes. Approximately 30% of the fruit is air-dried, Amarone-style. The fermenting juice from those grapes is added to the rest of the juice to give the wine an extra dimension of richness and body. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. "Winemaker's notes:Deep ruby-red in color, this wine is brimming with notes of dark, dried cherries, blackberries and hints of dates and mocha. Pairs well with full-flavored pasta and risotto dishes, roast poultry and chorizo. Also excellent with hard and semi-hard cheeses.

Dense and deep ruby red in color, Palazzo della Torre is loaded with luscious aromas of currant, blackberry and licorice.
