Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) The summer was definitely abnormal, given the high temperatures and the prolonged absence of rainfall. The providential downpour of July 17th, with 25 mm (1 inch) of rain managed, however, to restore water reserves and bring the vegetation back into a state of equilibrium. In addition, the abundant and much-needed rainfall at the beginning of September - about 80 mm (3 inches) - changed the macroclimate substantially, bringing with it the significant differences in day and night-time temperatures that are so indispensable for producing a wide range of aromas and for the retention of acidity, as well as for the phenolic ripening of the grapes. Although there was a decline in average production of 10% - 15%, the heat wave did not scorch the clusters. The harvest, which was interrupted by only two rainy days on 28th and 29th September, ended on October 17th. We expect wines with fine varietal expression, good acid content and structure.

    Aged in oak barrels, this is a unique wine with a pleasant, fruity, raisin-like character.

    (2006 Vintage) Dense and deep ruby red in color, Palazzo della Torre is loaded with luscious aromas of currant, blackberry and licorice.
