Principally known for its famous Amarone della Valpolicella, the winery Romano Dal Forno produces three wines, all characteristic of the area in which the winery is situated, distinguishing itself in its constant and total quest for absolute quality. Born next to his family’s vineyards, the founder grew up with a love for the countryside and an undying passion for his work, dedicating his life to continual improvement. For years, thanks to the commitment of the whole family, the company has reached unparalleled standards in their unflinching goal to give unique pleasure and emotion to all who drink a Dal Forno product. The continuous international recognition, which is received daily, compensates for all the scruples, sacrifices and the attention given to working procedures, in the vineyards and the winery, and gives the strength and energy required to ensure that the horizons of excellence are always moved to the next level.
The 1998 Amarone della Valpolicella Vigneto di Monte Lodoletta is a supreme example of this wine, almost overwhelming in its aromatic impact, luxuriously sweet, ripe, jammy, and chocolatey, mouthfilling and powerful in flavor, broad and caressing, solid and sustained from the attack to the lengthy, lingering finish, superbly shaped and balanced, pedal to the floor power and shapely elegance all in one package. The score is probably too conservative, but it can easily be checked over the next 25 years.
