Wine Advocate 88 points - The IGT Veronese 2011 Palazzo della Torre is a blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese. The fruit is round and soft with ample padding from ripe cherries and wild berries ripened under the warm 2011 summer sunshine. Palazzo della Torre rests in neutral oak for 15 months for color and aroma stabilization.  (Dec 2014)

Wine Enthusiast 87 points - This soft and spicy Ripasso has a fragrance of plum and raisin along with spicy notes of clove and pepper. The plush palate offers ripe black cherry along with nutmeg and cinnamon and finishes on a note of bitter almond. (Dec 2013)

This blend of 70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese is a smooth, full-bodied cru made in an innovative ripasso style. After the harvest, the grapes from the Palazzo della Torre vineyard 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. This wine will age easily for 8-10 years. Deep ruby red in color, it has a delicious red berry perfume, with hints of raisins and plums.
