Palazzo Della Torre 2001 "Allegrini" wine review by (PB)

Subtle bouquet of deep, dark rich plums close in and fresh plums and grapes with a waft. The wine has a dark cranberry hue.

In the mouth it is tart with a sour edge but oh so slight with a touch of bitters. Nicely made. This should open.

With time to breathe a touch of cedar and dried cherries shows. This is a bold forthright wine with big flavor and hefty in weight. It was $22 and a nice example of old world style. Raise a glass to Italy!
