Dark ruby. Deep aromas of smoky redcurrant, cooked plum, underbrush, herbs and cocoa. Enters the mouth creamy and nicely concentrated, with black pepper, spice and herb notes adding lift to the red fruit and chocolate flavors. A little chunky and less complex than usual for Dal Forno owing to the poor vintage but still shows good persistence.

Dal Forno should really change the name of his 2005 Valpolicella Superiore. It is really an Amarone for all practical intents and purposes, as it is made entirely from fruit that has been dried, albeit for less time than that legally required for Amarone. Firm, sturdy tannins frame blackberries, blueberries, violets and new leather in the 2005 Valpolicella. This is an especially structured, shut-down wine, even within the context of Dal Forno. The wine's gorgeous inner perfume and sheer depth suggest that all that is required is patience. With time in the glass the tannins soften just enough to get a glimpse of what is in store for those who can wait a few years. Bittersweet chocolate, graphite and tar are layered into the authoritative finish.
