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.
Dal Forno Romano Amarone della Valpolicella 2013 was released at the beginning of this year, and because Dal Forno skipped over the 2014 vintage, this is the only Amarone we will see for a while (until the highly anticipated 2015 is released). The 2013 vintage is characterized by a slightly more streamlined mouthfeel (which isn’t saying much given the baseline enormity of these wines) with carefully etched aromas of black cherry, rum cake, dark chocolate and toasted espresso.
