Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby red in colour, with perfumes of cherry and black forest cake. In addition, leather and spices such as cinnamon and cloves. On the palate, it has a smooth and velvety character, with mature fruit character, chewy structure with delicious raisin and dates flavours. 92\100. Try it with a marinated curry pork tenderloin cooked on the BBQ.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rich, robust, hearty, filling and persistently tannic. Lots of dried red fruit, raisin, toast, mocha, vanilla, baking spices, floral aromas and flavours. Medium+ acidity, full-bodied, long flashy black fruit finish. Some more time in the bottle will soften this wine. Decant at least 2 hours or enjoy from 2017. Pair with medium-rare red meats - protein, fat, salt.
Tasted: March 2015

Natalie's Review

Allegrini Della Torre 2011, Veneto I.G.T., Italy: This full-bodied Italian red wine is a classic blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Sangiovese grapes. Aromas of coffee and espresso nose, with black fruit and smoke on the nose and palate of this robust red. Smooth and mouth-filling on the palate with black fruit and smoke on a long finish. Decant 2 hours and enjoy with meat lovers' pizza. Drink: 2014-2020. 672931 13.50% XD 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 91/100. April 4, 2015 Top Rated Red Wine. Best Beef Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
