2013 Allegrini Palazzo della Torre
The Allegrini family is one of the strongest pillars supporting the centuries-old winemaking traditions of the Valpolicella and the veritable renaissance those traditions are experiencing today.
This wine is a smooth, full-bodied gem made in an innovative Ripasso style. After the harvest, the grapes follow two different paths: while 70% of the grapes are vinified immediately after the harvest, the remaining percentage is dried until the end of December. At this point, the wine ferments again with the dried grapes.
Deep ruby red in color, with aromas of wild berries, vanilla and currants, leading to an elegant, well-structured palate of berries, chocolate and ripe red berry fruit. The finish is lengthy with just a hint of raisins and plums.
