2012

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 a 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 compliment to any game meat dish.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is a beautifully complete wine, even at this young stage in its life. You feel the youth of the wine in the tightness of the tannins and in the finely knit texture of its concentrated flavor profile. The big surprise is the wine's fresh acidity that has been carefully safeguarded despite the heat of the vintage and the drying process so deftly executed at this landmark estate. The wine shows no sign of oxidation or evolution, not yet. There is intricate fruit layering with cherry, blackberry, spice and mesquite delivered with such precision, that level of detail defies the very bold and opulent essence of the wine. It has only just started its evolutionary journey.
