Food Pairings for Allegrini Corvina Blend Valpolicella Classico Superiore Palazzo Della Torre
Really fine tannins with beautiful cherry and dark fruit, with nice coffee and chocolate overtones. The Ripasso style is one that I'm just getting in to, and so far this one is my favorite. I've always loved Amarone, and this give a huge share of the Amarone character at a fraction of the price.
Juicy, vibrant and flavorful. Fantastic value.
Dark, rich color. A little tart taste. Dry. Not bad for the price.
Bold and a bit obtrusive. Katie says spicy?
Very earthy nose....medium body and a very pleasant finish....is a great wine for tomato based pasta dishes.... Give it a try!
External Reviews for Allegrini Corvina Blend Valpolicella Classico Superiore Palazzo Della Torre
Beautiful aromas of minerals, berries and violets, with just the right amount of toasted oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins, but slightly austere on the finish. Give it a year of bottle age. Best after 2002.
This Veneto red is glorious and rich, yet sophisticated. Dark ruby in color, it emits aromas of raisins and berries, with hints of cocoa and spice. It's full-bodied, with chewy yet velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Best after 2001.
Marilisa, Walter and Franco Allegrini own and manage this estate, and are respectively responsible for the sales and marketing, vineyards and winemaking. This single-vineyard wine blends Corvina (70 percent), Romdinella (25 percent) and Sangiovese (5 percent). Sangiovese is not permitted by the DOC, thus the less-prestigious Veronese IGT designation.
Lots of black fruit, violet and mineral character. Full-bodied, with densely packed fruit on a rounded, expansive palate, with well-integrated tannins and a long, fruity, minerally finish. Delicious now, but should open up even more. A great value at this score. Best after 2004.
This wine is a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Sangiovese (the latter replacing the traditional Molinara). Seventy percent of the grapes are vinified immediately, with the rest left to dry until December, then vinified and re-fermented with the wine made from the fresh grapes. The result is a round, smooth, concentrated and highly extracted wine to enjoy with roasted vegetables or roasted beef or lamb.
A gorgeous wine. This shows beautiful perfumes of ripe fruit, with hints of spicy oak and dried flowers. Full-bodied, with superfine, silky tannins and a long, long finish. Best from 2004 through 2008.
The Allegrini family estate encompasses 70 hectares of vineyard situated in the heart of the Valpolicella Classico area. The Allegrini family has been growing grapes in Valpolicella for several generations and the estate in its current form was founded by Giovanni Allegrini. When he died in 1983, the estate passed to his three children who ran it together until Walter’s death in July 2003. Franco now looks after the vineyards and is the winemaker, and Marilisa is director of marketing. The Palazzo della Torre vineyard in Fumane di Valpolicella encompasses 26.39 hectares of east-facing vineyard planted between 1962-1989, situated 240m above sea level. Allegrini purchased this vineyard in 1978. The soil is mostly cretaceous and calcareous. The vines on the Palazzo della Torre vineyard are trained in the traditional Pergola system, with about 3000 vines/ha. This red blend is deep, ruby red in colour, with intense perfumes of cherry-chocolate on the nose. On the palate the wine has good depth and power, with a hint of dried cherries from the ‘ripasso’ vinification. Smooth and fullbodied, with a rounder style, lower acidity and fuller structure than a Valpolicella Classico.
