This wine is elegant and well balanced, with a good structure and aroma. Ruby red in colour 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. Palazzo della Torre easily pairs with various Italian dishes, above all risottos, especially those flavoured 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. The delightful aroma of raisined grapes is enhanced if the wine is served at 18° C in a large wine glass.

Aromas of ripe dark-skinned fruit, camphor and crushed herb form the nose of this blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Sangiovese. On the taut, medium-bodied palate, firm, fine-grained tannins accompany raisin, prune and licorice. Drink through 2023.

Notes of black cherry preserves, delicate spice and fig cake are rich and frvinrant 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. Drink now through 2024.

Peppery herbs, florals and wild strawberries create a savory and inviting display on the 2017 Palazzo della Torre. Soft, creamy textures give way to ripe plums, cherries and hints of mocha toward the close. A caking of residual fruit concentrate lingers, along with a hint of chewy tannin, making for a slightly dry yet classic feel to the finale. I don't believe further cellaring will help soften the 2017 Palazzo della Torre, so it's best to enjoy it sooner rather than later.
