Allegrini, Veronese IGT, Palazzo Della Torre 2007 This vintage, as some in the past, features a bit more leather that adds a great complexity to the nose. In the mouth the ripeness of the wine comes through, with complexity and great length. This wine joins long driving acidity, ripe tannin and fruit in an inexpensively masterful way.
70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese are harvested from the Palazzo Della Torre vineyard. 70% of the crop is harvested in early September and vinified straight away while the rest is harvested in late October and dries until just after Christmas. These dried grapes are pressed and reintroduced to the young wine and another ferment kicks off in early January, adding body and richness to the final wine. Aged in oak for 15 months. Estate Bottled in Fumane di Valpolicella 13.5% purchased for $19.49 at Bottle Barn Allegrini
