|Region||Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella|
A juicy and flavorful red with dried berries, chocolate and hints of walnuts and herbs, following through to a rich finish. Medium body. Drink now.
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.
