The 2007 Valpolicella Superiore from the celebrated Monte Lodoletta vineyard is rock-tight with a midnight black appearance and aromas that emerge with fierce determination. The fascinating aromatic medley includes dark spice, prune, Spanish cedar, tar, black licorice, balsam herb and blackberry tart. The mouthfeel is plush and rich with super-tight tannins that grip nervously to the finish. It has only started its bottle evolution and requires more time to soften and develop. Drink 2017-2035.

Rich and smoky in flavor, yet graceful in form, with supple tannins and muscle structuring the flavors of dried cherry, bresaola, grilled marjoram, date and mesquite smoke, followed by a long, chewy finish.

About This Producer


Recognized as the undisputed leader of the new wave in Verona's winemaking, Romano Dal Forno only established his estate in the 1980s. The winery is located outside the so-called Zona Classica for Valpolicella, at Illasi. From 8 hectares of vineyard Dal Forno gets the best out of the Corvina and Rondinella varieties with small yields and rigorous selection during the harvesting.

The house speciality is Amarone, but Dal Forno makes Valpolicella with the same care as well. Fermentation and maceration are designed to extract maximum varietal character from the grapes. Dal Forno has adopted the use of barriques and has been working on ways to ferment the sugars completely out in wood, as if the wine were white. This style of vinification gives the oak a decisive role in the ageing process, without letting it dominate completely. Romano is also experimenting with an ultra-traditional red Recioto and a tiny parcel of fabulous white "passito" wine.
