Allegrini Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT 2015, Veneto, Italy
PRESS: James Suckling - 94 points. 'A very spicy nose with dried blueberries, Christmas cake, blackberry pudding, tar, treacle tart, roasted herbs and balsamic. Full body, ripe and round tannins and a finish that shows real verve and life, thanks to a wave of refreshing acidity.'
