Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Superiore 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): Romano Dal Forno's 2006 Valpolicella Superiore is dark, rich and powerful. Firm yet well-integrated tannins frame black cherries, mocha, licorice and spices in this deep, broad-shouldered wine. The 2006 boasts tons of depth and richness in a sophisticated, sleek style. I was quite surprised to see the 2006 drink well with just a few hours of air. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2018. (Feb 2012)

You can tell a Dal Forno wine a mile away thanks to the overall intensity and concentration of his well-crafted blends. Three years of oak aging has shaped aromas of Spanish cedar, chocolate, cola, blackberry jam and cherry liqueur. The wine is so thick, it moves like molasses in the glass.

Lightly chewy tannins and aromatic subnotes of pencil shavings, dried thyme and smoke support flavors of candied cherry, licorice string, dried cranberry and bresaola. This is supple overall, and the tannins provide modest structure to the creamy finish. Best from 2014 through 2022.
