Dal Forno Romano Amarone delle Valpolicella 2013

Dal Forno Romano, Amarone della Valpolicella 2013

RRP £310

Renowned modern-style Amarone. Dal Forno wines are matured in new oak barriques and Romano Dal Forno’s son Marco describes the approach as ‘traditional but innovative… maintaining the best of tradition and implementing it with technology’. This is a prowling panther, powerful, black and glossy. It is rich and concentrated with svelte muscle. What grabs me is the freshness and contained energy which is channelled into a strong and intense finish, streamed with savoury graphite and bitter chocolate freshness. Impressive.
