The Dal Forno family has been making wine since 1983. Located in Val D’Illasi, the estate consists of 65 acres of vines planted with traditional indigenous varieties of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Oseleta and Croatina. Their loose, alluvial soils, meticulous pruning and scrupulous viticultural techniques ensure remarkable-quality grapes. The Dal Fornos use traditional methods to grow the finest fruit, and then employ modern techniques to produce the best wines, classic in expression and modern in purity.
Dense, sweet and floral gargantuan. Super concentrated, rich and sweet, with notes of charred red pepper, oak and spice. An approachable wine, due to the extraordinary summer climate.
96 Points - James Suckling
Such a profound nose of fresh and dried fruit with blackcurrants, dates and prunes, together with lighter notes of mild spice and pomegranate seeds. The fresher elements provide the drive on the full palate and, together with very fine, bright, fine-grained tannins, give a long, chewy yet fresh and pruney finish. Hugely concentrated, but the balance and poise is impeccable. There’s no denying the classic quality of this.
