Dal Forno Romano Description

Blend: 60% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 10% Oseleta, 10% Croatina

James Suckling: 97 Points

A decadent nose of treacle tart, chocolate, tar, tons of black fruit such as blackberries and mulberries and even ash and licorice. A dense, layered mouthfeel makes for a full-bodied palate that's explosive yet somehow so refined and pretty all at the same time. The finish goes on and on.

Wine Advocate: 96 Points

The 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is a beautifully complete wine, even at this young stage in its life. You feel the youth of the wine in the tightness of the tannins and in the finely knit texture of its concentrated flavor profile. The big surprise is the wine's fresh acidity that has been carefully safeguarded despite the heat of the vintage and the drying process so deftly executed at this landmark estate. The wine shows no sign of oxidation or evolution, not yet. There is intricate fruit layering with cherry, blackberry, spice and mesquite delivered with such precision, that level of detail defies the very bold and opulent essence of the wine. It has only just started its evolutionary journey.

Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points

Aromas of underbrush, prune, minestrone soup and grilled bell pepper lead the nose while whiffs of French oak, leather and coconut stay in the background. The densely concentrated, tightly knit palate offers raisin, blackberry extract, clove, licorice and dried sage while assertive grainy tannins leave an astringent mouth-drying finish.
