Allegrini Corvina Blend Veronese IGT la Poja 2009
Allegrinis Palazzo della Torre is often an irresistibly stylish wine, as it is again in 2005. This opulent, generous red is loaded with jammy dark cherries, chocolate, spices and sweet toasted oak. A portion of the fruit for this wine (30%) is left to air-dry on racks (Amarone-style) until December, when it is fermented and subsequently added to the rest of the wine, which is fermented normally. The addition of the wine from the dried fruit gives Palazzo della Torre an uncommon level of richness, density and complexity. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2011.Cheese Pairings: Grana Padano, Robiola, GorgonzolaFood Pairings: Spiced Lamb, Pasta, Steak
Very under rated wine, this was just compared to Zenato Ripassa Baby Amarone and majority of people chose this over the Zenato. Rich nose with a bit of dirt, earth, vanilla, and a touch of smoke on the finish.
30% of the grapes for this wine are heald back to be dried on straw mats. Luscious cherries, chocolate, coffee. This ripasso method gives the wine added depth and complexity and power.
Wow. One of my favorite Italian wines, period. Drank one and put one away for a year or so..can't wait to open it for a great drink then.
Opulent, intense fruit; almost New World in style.
smooth, rich, fruity and absolutely delicious. This wine is reminiscent of a Amarone with port like qualities, minus the hefty price tag. This is my current favorite and go to wine for all occasions.
Fantastic slow weekend evening wine, great full-bodied wine with rich currants and a smokey nose.

This blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese is a smooth, full-bodied cru made in an innovative ripasso style.

Allegrini's Palazzo della Torre (70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Sangiovese) has long been one of my favorite ripasso-style wines and the 2004 is another winner. It reveals a plump, juicy personality loaded with perfumed, jammy fruit, roasted coffee beans and new leather. Although it is absolutely irresistible today, a few additional months of bottle age should help soften the wine further. It is a gorgeous effort at this level and a terrific value. Allegrini employs a unique variation of the ripasso technique for its Palazzo della Torre. The traditional method calls for the wine to undergo a second fermentation on the skins that are leftover from the vinification of the Amarone. The estate believes that this method leads to oxidized wines. Instead Allegrini dries a portion of the grapes (around 30%) and ferments them separately in the same style as an Amarone, then adds that wine to the larger portion of the wine, which is fermented in the conventional manner.
Densely packed on the nose, with currants, flowers, minerals and oak. Medium to full-bodied, with spicy dried fruit flavors, firm tannins, and a long, minerally finish. One of the best values in outstanding wines from Italy. Best after 2006.
