Wine Advocate | Rating: 90The 1993 Valpolicella Palazzo Della Torre is a beauty. It is a blend of 70% grapes that are harvested and vinified normally and 30% that were left on mats until December to dry and raisin. They were then vinified, and blended back into the vat of the traditionally vinified wine. The blended wine was aged for 18 months in barriques. The wine offers up complex aromas of leather, spice, cedar, dried fruits, and berries. Rich and full-bodied, with undeniable elegance and precision, this is one of the most provocative and persuasive Valpolicellas I have tasted. It should drink well for 3-5 years.Author: Robert Parker
Located in the northeast of the country, the Veneto is Italy's third-largest wine region. It reaches from the slopes of the Dolomites in the north to the marshes in the south along the Adriatic Sea. The Veneto has three DOCG wines including Recioto di Soave, Soave Superiore, and Bardolino Superiore, as well as 22 DOs, including Valpolicella and Amarone. Valpolicella is traditionally a blend of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara. The Amarone della Valpolicella and Recioto della Valpolicella wines are made from grapes that have been dried to produce rich, concentrated flavors.
