      A beautiful, polished red with dried-berry, plum, floral and cedar aromas. Full body and a flavorful finish. Extremely refined and polished, more so than many past vintages. Already gorgeous, but needs a year or two to come together. Better after 2022.

      This is dark and packed with flavors of dried cherry, black olive and licorice. Thick, chewy tannins add to the density of the wine, eventually loosening as the bright acidity begins to trickle through. Some of that darkness may come from oseleta, a thick-skinned, tannic variety that comprises ten percent of the blend (the balance is corvina with 20 percent rondinella and 10 percent croatina). The grapes dried for three months in open-air rooms, and the wine finished fermentation in new barrels, where it remained for two years, picking up notes of clove, nutmeg and anise.

      This dense, inky Valpolicella defies a category that is typified by soft cherry-fruited wines. Dal Forno’s Valpolicella goes through a similar process as the family’s blockbuster Amarone (also recommended here), with two years of aging in new oak barrels and three in bottle, though the grapes are dried for 45 days rather than 90. It starts out dark, with notes of dried plum and blackberry, chewing tobacco and roasted mushroom, then brightens to red cherry as vibrant acidity draws the flavors out on a long, complex finish.

      Absurdly intense on the nose, saturated in dark-plum essence, vanilla, tar, ash, mocha and light raisins. Somehow, this still manages to be fresh and elegant — that’s thanks in part to the fine nature of the tannins, which on the surface seem brash and burly. Full-bodied and very, very long, casting dark fruit deep and ingrained. A stunning blockbuster of a wine that will either thrill or disturb. Drink from 2025.
