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. 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.

This well-balanced red is medium-bodied and fresh, with citrus peel acidity, offering a pleasing range of crushed black cherry and spicy mineral notes, with delicate hints of black licorice and thyme. Light, dusty tannins firm the finish. Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Sangiovese. Drink now through 2026. 33,300 cases made, 25,000 cases imported.

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.

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.
