92pts James Suckling

A juicy and flavorful red with dried berries, chocolate and hints of walnuts and herbs, following through to a rich finish. Medium body.

90pts Wine Spectator

Notes of black cherry preserves, delicate spice and fig cake are rich and fragrant in this elegant, medium-bodied red, which is lightly juicy, with creamy tannins that firm the herb- and smoke-laced finish. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Sangiovese.

90pts Wine Enthusiast

Ripe dark berry, underbrush and spice aromas lead the nose. The savory, balanced palate offers dried black cherry, star anise and a touch of cinnamon alongside velvety tannins. Enjoy through 2024. 

Winemaker Notes

This wine is elegant and well balanced, with a good structure and aroma. Ruby red in color with purple hues, it offers light hints of raisins, sophisticated notes of vanilla, black pepper, cloves and cinnamon. It has a long, velvety finish and soft tannins.

Blend: Corvina Veronese 40%, Corvinone 30%, Rondinella 25%, Sangiovese 5%

Palazzo della Torre easily pairs with various Italian dishes, above all risottos, especially those flavored with saffron, porcini mushrooms and pork; classic dishes such as pasta with Amatriciana and Carbonara sauces, baked lasagna, gnocchi with gorgonzola cheese and walnuts; grilled meats and roasts. It also excels when matched with Parma ham and fine-cured Zibello pork loin, as well as medium-matured cheeses, especially Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan), pecorino and Monte Veronese.
