2008 Amarone Della Valpolicella Superiore Dal Forno Monte Lodoletta 75cl / 16.5%
A bottle of 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella Superiore from Dal Forno Romano, a full-bodied dry red wine made from partially dried Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina and Oseleta grapes. The Dal Forno family has been making wine since 1983. Located in Val D’Illasi, the estate consists of 65 acres of vines planted at 50 to 250 metres of altitude with traditional indigenous varieties.
'the 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella (with fruit sourced from the high density Monte Lodoletta vineyard) opens with immense darkness and the kind of midnight impenetrability you never see on any color wheel for fine wine. Its off the charts appearance is followed by similarly unique aromatic intensity and versatility that spans from blackberry syrup and candied prune to chewing tobacco, black peppercorn and rain-soaked asphalt......Ultimately, this wine promises a graceful, steady and long evolution. Drink: 2017-2035. 95/100' Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, 2013
