Wine Review: This dark ruby colored blend from opens with a flint stone and musty black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and juicy with medium acidity. The flavor profile is a red plum with notes of fig and blueberry with notes of black cherry. I also detected hints of cola and cinnamon towards the end. The finish is dry, and its dusty tannins stick around for a while. I would pair this rustic styled Italian wine with a three-meat lasagna. 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, and porcini mushrooms and pork.
