Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Great value, this wine touches on the Ripasso style where a 30% portion of the grapes is left to dry until December when the grapes are added back to the finished wine to give volume and body. The resulting wine is grapey and spicy with hints of Christmas pudding and molasses. A full bodied wine that is refreshed at the end by a clean acidity. Try with olive and garlic pasta @wrightwineblog
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From the area of Venice this wine is a blend of Corvina and rondinella. A deep purple full-bodied wine with aromas of spice like nutmeg, herbs and blackberry. Raisons taste on the palate is balanced with the acidity. Cured or smoked meat appetizers, mushroom based dishes, and pork with Oriental spices will pair well.




Natalie's Review

Allegrini Palazzo della Torre 2015, Veneto I.G.T., Italy: A robust Italian traditional red wine blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Sangiovese grapes rich and spicy with blackberry, blueberry, dried fruit, roasted herbs and dark chocolate flavours on the palate with great acidity for a Bistecca Florentine. Tannins are smooth and rounded. Drink: 2019-2022. 672931 13.50% XD 750 mL  $24.95 Score: 89/100. November 16, 2019 Magnificent Meat Pizza Wine  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
