Critical Acclaim

RP96 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st May 2017

"The 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is another extreme wine from Romano Dal Forno and his family. It is almost impossible to wrap your head around the intensity and richness that is so expertly delivered by this monumental wine. The bouquet is sweet and heavy with luscious tones of black fruit, prune, dried rose bud, cherry liqueur, spice and tarry asphalt. The wine oozes forth with impactful thickness and generosity. Rather than a companion to a meal, this wine is a meal in itself. It goes over and beyond traditional Amarone. This was a hot vintage, but the brunt of the heat came towards the middle/end of the growing season, followed by cooler temperatures at harvest." (96 pts.)

VN95+ Vinous May 2017

"Fully saturated ruby. Very deep, intense aromas of blackcurrant, plums macerated in alcohol, soy sauce, coffee and underbrush on the complex nose. Rich, dense and balanced, with nicely focused flavors of dark berries and aromatic herbs that have a noteworthy savory tang. The long finish features repeating hints of soy sauce, espresso and underbrush. Dal Forno’s is the recognized master of a uniquely powerful, ripe, and concentrated style of Amarone." (95+ pts.)

SP95 Wine Spectator Feb 28, 2018

"Sweet smoke, Asian five-spice powder and cacao accents mix with crème de cassis, cured tobacco and anise notes in this seamless, full-bodied red. A dense and concentrated version, with a long, savory finish firmed by supple, well-knit tannins. Drink now through 2030. 250 cases imported." (95 pts.)

WS93 Wine & Spirits February 1, 2018

"Dal Forno’s 2011 Amarone is about as dense as a wine can get and still be called liquid. Its flavors combine like a meal in the glass, revealing savory notes of roasted beet, charred meat and hoisin along with espresso and baked plum. Powerful tannins close around the flavors like a vise, relenting after a few hours in the glass and allowing trickles of acidity to invigorate the dense flavors. Built for the long haul, this needs a decade in the cellar to reveal its layered complexity." (93 pts.)

JS95 JamesSuckling.com Monday, November 21, 2016

"Very dark fruits on the nose with hints of bark and dried flowers. Full body, soft and silky tannins with a chewy finish. Loads of dark chocolate and berry. Flavorful and balanced. Drink now." (95 pts.)

Veneto

Veneto, in northeastern Italy, is home to some of the most celebrated Italian wines, including Amarone red wines. The cities Verona and Venice fall within Veneto, and the areas surrounding Verona in western Veneto is where you'll find Amarone and Valpolicella production. Western Veneto also produces some fantastic white wines, like Soave. Meanwhile, the eastern part of Veneto has something worth celebrating, as well, as that's where Prosecco comes from.
