Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Rosso Veronese IGT

2017

In a Nutshell

Allegrini’s take on the “Ripasso” method is made from a portion of grapes dried just for this wine.

Tasting Notes

This wine is ruby red in colour with purple highlights. On the nose, there are enticing aromas of cherry with rich dark chocolate notes and hints of cloves and vanilla. Velvety in texture, it is well-balanced and offers ripe, juicy dark fruit, with silky tannins and refreshing acidity.

Production Notes

Franco Allegrini used the modern version of the traditional 'ripasso' technique for Palazzo della Torre, drying a proportion of the grapes in the 'Terre di Fumane' drying centre, to intensify the character of this vineyard. The grapes that were dried were hand picked during September, and the grapes vinified immediately were picked at the end of the month. 70% of the grapes picked were vinified immediately and 30% were left to dry until the second half of December when they were vinified and then refermented with the wine from the fresh grapes. The wine spent 15 months in second-use barriques, and was blended together for two months, then aged for a further seven months in bottle.
