90 PTS – The Wine Advocate
"The 2010 Palazzo della Torre is 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Sangiovese that is air-dried until December after the harvest. That brief appassimento has shaped a delicious wine with loads of cherry and dark spice. It’s a great value with the depth of concentration and length that would match a wine double this price. Drink 2013-2018"
90 PTS – Wine Enthusiast
"Made from 30% dried grapes in the Amarone method, this delicious wine is loaded with mouthwatering black cherry, carob and fig flavors, with touches of mocha and nutmeg. It’s silky smooth, with polished tannins, fresh acidity and depth that offers effortless drinkability and pleasure."
Kenn Pogash ("the guy wearing the bow tie")
In the glass the wine greets you with a deep, almost opaque, black cherry color core that is almost consistent to very narrow dark pink rim. On the nose the wine offers a medium intensity of plums, a mélange of green hrbs (mint, parsley and dried bay leaf) with a slight hint of black licorice and pine forest. On the palate the wine is dry with a medium body, mouth-watering acidity and a medium(+) level of tannin. The flavors are a medium intensity of fresh plums, green herbs and black fruit (blue berry, black berry). The finish is clean with a medium length of lingering flavors similar to the palate along with refreshing acidity at the end. (May 10, 2014)
