You can tell a Dal Forno wine a mile away thanks to the overall intensity and concentration of his well-crafted blends. Three years of oak aging has shaped aromas of Spanish cedar chocolate cola blackberry jam and cherry liqueur. The wine is so thick it moves like molasses in the glass.

Romano Dal Forno's 2006 Valpolicella Superiore is dark rich and powerful. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame black cherries mocha licorice and spices in this deep broad-shouldered wine.

Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame black cherries mocha licorice and spices in this deep broad-shouldered wine. The 2006 boasts tons of depth and richness in a sophisticated sleek style. I was quite surprised to see the 2006 drink well with just a few hours of air. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2018.

Lightly chewy tannins and aromatic subnotes of pencil shavings dried thyme and smoke support flavors of candied cherry licorice string dried cranberry and bresaola. This is supple overall and the tannins provide modest structure to the creamy finish. Best from 2014 through 2022. 200 cases imported. -AN

Label

Since the 2002 vintage, all grapes that go into the production of dal Forno Valpolicella are subjected to a light drying process which lasts around one and a half months. This process, traditional but longer for Amarone, creates concentration but maintains freshness.

Investing in this process for Valpolicella is uncommon and, therefore, the intense aromatic Romano Dal Forno wine is stands out from others in the region. This wine offers hints of blueberry, blackberry, cherry and chocolate which emerge gradually as the wine breathes. The velvety tannins are in perfect balance with the luxurious aromas of sweet spices and jam.
