About This Wine:
The wine is made using an innovative take on the 'ripasso' technique. Most of the grapes are vinified at harvest time, while the rest are set aside to partially dry. In January, the wine blended with the juice from the raisined grapes undergoes a second fermentation.

TASTING NOTES:
The vineyard surrounds Villa della Torre, a splendid masterpiece of Renaissance architecture now owned by the family, and produces a full-bodied red wine that has an ageing potential of at least ten years. The blend is the historic combination of Corvina and Rondinella with the addition of a small quantity of Sangiovese.


Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"What a delicious nose of brambleberries, vanilla, mocha-scented oak, spice box, plum liqueur, licorice and milk chocolate. Full-bodied and rich with plenty of dense fruit and fresh acidity that carries this to a long finish. Almost verges on too much but pulls back. Drink now or hold. "

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
Aromas of ripe black-skinned fruit and exotic spice are front and center on this delicious red. On the fresh palate, tightly knit, polished tannins carry mouthwatering black cherry, blackberry compote, mocha and cinnamon. Enjoy through 2024.

Wine Spectator Magazine:

"This bright red offers brambly berry and rich sun-dried cherry and date fruit, accented by notes of dried marjoram, star anise and hot stone. Creamy and medium-bodied, with a juicy finish. Drink now through 2019. 19,740 cases imported." – AN (Oct 31, 2016)
