The best bunches from vines older than ten years, are set aside for drying and producing Amarone. Strength, energy and elegance. A combination that symbolizes the Dal Forno Romano Philosophy. The unique complexity of this wine is such that merely describing it as a "meditation wine" falls well short of the mark. Its scent is s masterpiece, its taste a work of art. Vanilla. Sour black cherries. Blueberries. Chocolate. Truffle, tobacco and leather. Amarone is a delight in its own right. However, it will be a classy complement to any game meat dish.

Wine AdvocateThis is a deeply communicative and articulate wine that boasts immense power and persistence. The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is a creation of enormous beauty and unflinching intensity. The wine speaks at loud volumes with black cherry, spice, tarry smoke, barbecue marinade and grilled rosemary. Those balsam notes add length and continuity to the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine is complete and penetrating. It wraps thickly over the palate to soothe and entice your taste buds. Yet there is enough crispness to keep it from feeling cloying or too heavy. There is a point of tannic astringency on the finish that will accompany this wine over the next decade of its aging evolution. For that reason, it's best to wait before popping the cork on this memorable vinous experience.

Wine SpectatorLike a gymnast, this focused red shows both power and grace. Finely meshed flavors of blackberry puree, fig cake and Earl Grey tea leaf are framed by refined, dusty tannins, with a lasting finish expands on the palate with spice and smoky mineral details. Drink now through 2030. 450 cases imported.
