TASTING NOTES

In the beautiful and picturesque Val d'Illasi, east of Verona, are produced wines of international fame and unique taste, which have contributed to making Veneto a landmark of world enology. The company has evolved its vision redeveloping the activity of selection and recovery of varieties: decisive choices such as the elimination of Molinara and the parallel rediscovery of native vines, previously abandoned. Amarone della Valpolicella Romano Dal Forno is obtained from the selection of the best bunches of vines over ten years old. It comes from a blend of 60% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 10% Croatina and 10% Oseleta, harvested with careful manual selection from mid-September to late October, dried for three months and pressed towards the middle of December. Fermentation takes place in steel tanks, and after decanting, in mid-January, the wine is placed in new barriques where it resumes a slow second fermentation that lasts 18 months. The period in barriques is 24 months, followed by another 36 months of aging in bottle before being put on the market. It has an intense and impenetrable ruby red color, the nose features symphonies of black cherry, blueberry, moka, chocolate but also pepper and oak. Soft, persuasive and with a long, full and memorable finish. The tannins are velvety and smooth. Powerful, vigorous, complex and elegant, this Amarone is an emblematic summary of the company’s philosophy, which can be placed in the category of meditation wines. To fully appreciate its style, this wine should be served at a serving temperature of 16/18 ºC. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Dal Forno Romano

Along the Lessini mountain range, not far from Verona and in the heart of the Val d'Iliasi, stands Cantina Dal Forno Romano. Since its foundation, the main purpose of the company has been to rediscover the native grape varieties. After a careful study of the land and the raw materials, it can be said that the raw material is now beautifully enhanced, and transformed into high-quality Venetian wines. In addition to the more traditional techniques, which have always influenced the winemakers of the area, the winery has been able to combine more modern and avant-garde techniques, always respecting the land and the timing of the vineyards. The redevelopment of the land and the vines proved to be a winning choice thanks to the final result, capable of expressing the love and passion for the area. Between the precious bottles of Valpolicella, Amarone and the prized Recioto Vigna Seré, you will be spoiled for choice. Name and address of producer/distributor: Dal Forno Romano - Località Lodoletta, 1, 37031 Cellore d'Illasi VR. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
