    Winemaker's Notes:

    Corvina (60%), with Rondinella (20%), Oseleta (10%) and Croatina (10%).

    Deep ruby-red color, ripe, intense port-like aromas of hazelnut, raisin, and blackberry; very sweet, rich and soft on the palate; warm textured , persistent balsamic sensations. Floral notes add flavor, finishes very long.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella is one of the most monumental young wines I have ever tasted. This is an especially silky, elegant Amarone from Dal Forno that avoids the heaviness of some previous vintages. Blackberry jam, crushed rocks, minerals, violets, new leather and bittersweet chocolate are some of the nuances that emerge over time. This is every bit as majestic as it was every time I tasted it from barrel over the last few years. The silky, exceptionally polished tannins make the 2004 approachable today, but the wine will be even better in a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2029.

    The Wine Advocate

    Offers an amazing brilliant color of dark ruby red that's almost black. The nose shows subtle tar, black chocolate and crushed raspberry, and this is full and opulent on the palate, with fabulously polished tannins and a long, long finish. To be released and price to be determined. Drink now through 2020.
