Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2017

The 2004 Passito Rosso Vino Dolce Vigna Seré (500-mililiter) is a masterpiece that is impossible to repeat. In fact, the wine has not been produced since 2004. Even if a vintage as good as this did come along, we'd need...

Decanter, March 2018

A Recioto in all but name, as Dal Forno withdrew from the appellation after the 2003 was rejected by the Consorzio for its atypical astringency. This is a profound sweet red wine that will probably live forever. The...

Wine Enthusiast, December 2012

Cellar Selection. Labeled as “air-dried sweet red wine” instead of its traditional name “Recioto,” this is indeed a powerful and generous wine. It boasts huge density and superintense aromas of blackberry, oak spice and...

Dal Forno is principally known for its famous Amarone della Valpolicella. Established in 1983, the winery is situated in the Valley of Illasi, a valley to the east of Verona. Construction of the winery, along with the restoration of the house that serves as the business headquarters, began in 1990. The style is that of a 19th century country manor house which Valpolicella is nationally recognized for.

Romano Dal Forno produces three wines: the Amarone, a Valpolicella Superiore, and a sweet wine from dried grapes, Vigna Sere, all showing characteristic of the area in which the winery is situated, distinguishing itself in its constant and total quest for absolute quality.

The Dal Forno vineyard is planted with Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina and Oseleta grape varieties on gravel, silt and clay soil.

Passito Vigna Serre represents the jewel in the crown of Dal Forno’s winery. Produced in very limited amounts and on very rare occasions, Vigna Sere possesses immense opulence and density, with preeminent hints of plum, black cherry, raspberry, chocolate and coffee. A good level of sharpness supports the sweet, refined tannins.

55% Corvina, 15% Rondinella, 20% Croatina, 10% Oseleta. The grapes used in the production of Vigna Serè come from vines which have a minimum age of ten years. It is important to point out that this wine is not produced every year but only when optimal climatic conditions ensure for a truly exceptional yield.
