2008 Allegrini “Palazzo della Torre”

There’s an intensity of dark almost raisiny blackberry fruit, but it’s nowhere over the top. It’s gentle, yet keeps on coming. The acidity does not announce itself but it is there. It’s definitely not soft, but also not aggressive. The blend is typically Veronese: Corvina and Rondinella mostly, a touch of Sangiovese. It’s relaxing to drink. You don’t have to think about it, but if you do, you will think it’s simply delicious. The wine is a pleasure to drink, as it was a pleasure to eat the squash, pancetta and fontina cheese pizza I enjoyed with it. The wine is about $20, though it’s available for less if you know how to shop. But don’t look too hard, it’s worth even more. It’s from the Veneto, Italy.
