Wine Review: This ruby colored blend from Italy opens with a very inviting anise and black cherry bouquet with a hint of Spanish cedar. On the palate, this wine is full bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a tasty black plum and a gentle minerality along with a hint of red currant and cola. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins stick around for a while. I would pair this wine with Italian beef briacole. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: 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.

Organic status: not organic
