Amarone della Valpolicella is an extreme wine even when considered in its most basic form. The philosophy at the Dal Forno winery is to capture that spirit of excess by submitting the fruit to rigorous high-density planting (with 12,800 vines per hectare), drying the fruit with specially patented technology in a high-tech ventilated loft, applying vacuum conditions to winemaking after fermentation to avoid oxygen (using five times the weight of stainless steel compared to a regular winery) and then aging the wines in an ambitious regime of 100% new oak.
