Allegrini 1998 "Palazzo della Torre" Veronese ($19.99)
Inky blackish-purple, opaqe. Ripe black-cherry and dark chocolate aromas and flavors, juicy and concentrated fruit and sweet oak, good acid balance. Very appealing, a crowd-pleaser, but thoroughly "international" in style. US Importer: Winebow Inc., NYC (May 4, 2002)
FOOD MATCH: The wine's abundant fruit makes it a very good partner with a fresh morel ragout over spaghetti.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
