The Allegrini Farm is located in Fumane di Valpolicella. For generations, the Allegrini family has lived in this small but important locality of the Valpolicella Classica, handing down the activity of wine growing and the vinification of grapes from generation to generation. Since the XVI century, the components of the family have been among the protagonists of Valpolicella history. The document attesting to the fact that Allegrino Allegrini succeeded in purchasing the right to exploit several "fountains" or "springs" in Mazzurega, a suburb of Fumane, to facilitate irrigation of his property, is dated 1557. Between 1616 and 1630, as testified to by the acts and transcriptions of the time, the Allegrini family was counted among the families in Fumane who owned the most land, which ensured their pre-eminence in local society. Giovanni Allegrini, who was extremely proud, like his predecessors, to belong to the land of Valpolicella and dedicated his many resources and great energy to it, was the head of the new generation. Giovanni was among the first winegrowers to question local practices, revolutionising consolidated habits and speaking clearly about quality; he succeeded in adding oenological know-how to rigorousness in selecting grapes, thus creating a virtuous circle that produced some of the finest wines of the Valpolicella in the Sixties and Seventies of the last century. After his early death in 1983, his three children inherited the company: Walter, responsible for conducting the winegrowing activity, Franco, an oenologist and Marilisa, responsible for marketing. Within a relatively short period of time, they brought the company to a position of leadership in international winegrowing. Read less

Medium ruby. Red cherry, dark plum, caramel, and floral aromas. Medium-plus acidity, medium tanins, medium-plus intensity, medium-plus body, and high alcohol (14.5%). Maraschino cherry and well integrated oak on the palate. Long, earthy finish.

So tonight being the 100th anniversary of the last dinner aboard the RMS Titanic, I thought it might be interesting to honor the tragedy with a dinner and bottle of wine that hearkens back to those days when technology and industry seemed to hold all the answers for mankind (where have I heard that before?). So I thought about recreating the menu, but I have to admit I had neither the desire nor inclination toward creating a 12-course dinner for myself tonight, so that seems out, though you know whatever I have will be good. Then I searched the web trying to find a list of wines served on Titanic, and perhaps I might have a current vintage, or even a similar wine, like a Bordeaux or Burgundy, but alas there is very little detail on the wines served on board.

The 2008 Palazzo Della Torre is striking in this vintage. It shows remarkable harmony in a tense, mineral-infused expression of fruit. Hints of licorice, tobacco, mocha and spices develop in the glass, adding further complexity and nuance. All of the elements flow gracefully to a finish layered with the essence of crushed rocks and flowers. This is an absolutely delicious wine from Allegrini. Palazzo della Torre is made with a partial ripasso technique in which 30% of the fruit is dried Amarone-style, while the other 70% is picked and vinified conventionally. Once again, Palazzo della Torre is one of the very finest values in Italian wine. Anticipated maturity: 2012ndash;2020.
