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.

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.
