The godfathers of Amarone are without a doubt Quintarelli, Garbole and the legendary Romano Dal Forno and are among the absolute top among Valpolicella and Amarone wines, so of course Dal Forno should not be missing from the range of Grancru wines. At Dal Frono, wine is made in an almost manical way where it is only about quality and not quantity. Romano not only knows every vine in his vineyard, but even every bunch. At the Fattoria, all grape bunches are checked one by one and only the best grapes are selected for harvesting. Dal Forno stands for perfection.

The Dal Forno Romano Amerone is one of the very best Amarone in the world. The Amarone della Valpolicellla Monte Lodoletta is a wine that people dream about and is a bottle that a wine lover would like to have in his collection. The wine is monumental, magical, decadent and with a unique personality. Does this sound over the top? As Robert Parker states, “It is impossible to exaggerate the greatness of this wine.”

The Dal Forno Amarone is made from 60% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 10% Oseleta, 10% Croatina. The best grapes are picked manually with the utmost care. After this, they dry in large open spaces for 3 months. The pressing usually starts in mid-December after the grapes have been manually checked. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at around 28°C. The tanks are equipped with an extremely careful, computer-controlled process that keeps the contents moving for 15 days, after which the final maceration lasts 2 days. After that process, the wine is poured into new barrels, where slow fermentation continues for 18 months. The wine remains in the barrel for a total of 36 months. After filtering, the wine is bottled, after which it continues to mature for a long time and is only released when Romano deems the time ripe. This is a 1.5 liter magnum .

An exorbitant Amarone. Intense dark red in color with so many layers in the scent... Sultry aromas of cherries, blueberries, currants, raisins, tutti frutti, chocolate, coffee and tobacco. Full of flavor with a bittersweet start. Deep and concentrated with ripe fruit, truffle, tobacco and new leather. A masterful aftertaste. A wine with a lot to discover, with an unprecedented storage potential of up to 2055+. This Amarone goes well with roasted meat such as beef, lamb, veal, but also with game such as deer, rabbit and wild boar. The wine also goes well in combination with tomato-based pasta or truffles. This wine can also be combined with strong, older cheeses.

The wine is gradually starting to blossom, but it still has a very bright future ahead of it and this is an ideal candidate for a Coravin . You can try a small sip or glass and then let the wine rest effortlessly for years
