The 2004 Vigna Serè is the perfect conclusion to a vintage that will go down as one of Dal Forno's most magical. Sweet, silky tannins support layers of super-refined, elegant fruit in this magical sweet red. Mocha, espresso, new leather, raspberry jam and spices emerge with time in the glass, but this is really a wine that shows off textural finesse more than anything else. I have tasted this wine many times since it was in barrel and later in bottle. It has never been anything less than spellbinding. It is one of the most magical sweet dessert wines I have ever tasted. At eight years of age the 2004 remains a an infant. 98+

Label

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.

Winery

Dal Forno Romano

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.
