Description

Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Superiore has “such a profound nose of fresh and dried fruit with blackcurrants, dates and prunes, together with lighter notes of mild spice and pomegranate seeds. The fresher elements provide the drive on the full palate and, together with very fine, bright, fine-grained tannins, give a long, chewy yet fresh and pruney finish. Hugely concentrated, but the balance and poise is impeccable. There’s no denying the classic quality of this. Delicious to taste now, but this needs a few years to integrate.” JAMES SUCKLING

Romano Dal Forno took control of his Valpolicella wine estate at the age of 22 and quickly turned the Veneto’s maestro, Giuseppe Quintarelli for advice. A policy of low yields and an uncompromising drive for quality has established the Dal Forno family as the producers amongst the finest producing from dried grapes – an otherworldly Amarone, a complex Valpolicella Superiore and a deliciously sweet Recioto. The area has been proven, by Romano, as a magnificent terroir for Valpolicella wines. Dal Forno is now one of the most collectable and sought-after wines in Italy.
