A Master at Work: 2010 Dal Forno Amarone

Posted by Ian McFadden

Dal Forno's Amarone is a very special wine. It's a wine of unmistakable greatness.

Dal Forno's Amarone combines breathtaking scale with a heartbreaking complexity and seemingly endless depth. There is simply no other wine like it.

We first landed this parcel in August and immediately sent out an offer. 2010 is such an impressive Dal Forno and the pricing was so sharp that we couldn't help ourselves. I'm happy to offer this again in a more appropriate season.

The 2010 possesses all of the qualities we look for in top vintages of Dal Forno. 2010 was a cooler vintage in Valpolicella, and the wines show beautiful concentration with a fine thread of elegance. Dal Forno's 2010 Amarone is an especially stunning and ageworthy edition, animated by harmony and intensity.

Dal Forno’s Amarone is a full-throttle thoroughbred. In 2010, there are layers of dark fruits, violets, cloves, herbs, cassis, earth, smoke and leather, delivered with density and poise. It's incredibly captivating and compelling.

When you taste Dal Forno's wines, it's clear that this is the work of a master. His Amarone is a distance runner. For fans of Dal Forno, this is a don't miss.
