"Amazing aromas of dried fruits, burnt orange and walnut skin. Full-bodied, chewy and very rich and dry, with wonderful tannin-fruit tension. It's layered, textured and complex. A triumph."

Azienda Agricola Romano Dal Forno

At the age of 22 Romano dal Forno met Giuseppe Quintarelli, who could justifiably be called the father of Valpolicella. Some 37 years later and having followed the master Quintarelli’s guidance, dal Forno has risen to become one of the standout producers of the region. The Amarone, for which the estate is best known, is a tour de force. It shows power and richness which comes from drying the grapes on straw mats before pressing to concentrate the juice, but also great elegance.
