    April 3, 2019 - This is fantastic for those who like a big bold wine. In my tasting group everyone assumed it was in the younger range and couldn't believe it was an 05. Such fresh powerful fruit, touch of menthol, some bacon fat, and a little pepper at the end in a long finish. This is built to last, but really good now.

    February 2, 2019 - Zurich Supper Club convenes in NYC - Andrew, Pohlin and Paolo (Casa Apicii, NYC): Paolo contributed this one for the evening. Decanted for about an hour prior to drinking, 3rd wine, drank after the 98 Gaja Sperss. Really like Dal Forno, my first time with this vintage

    Dark, inky ruby color. Nose showing red fruits, smoke, underbrush. Big plate...black fruits, blueberry, savory notes, black licorice, herbs, pepper(?), tar. Softening on the mid palate with lavender notes. Full bodied, long finish...

    Dal Forno is very consistent (IMO), you have to like the style. This wine is more of a "baby Amarone" than a Valpolicella. This one in a good spot, has aged nicely, should continue to evolve if wanting to cellar

    January 5, 2019 - Intense, powerful fruit - rich but not syrupy. Amazing length, dusty tannins. Dark fruits, cloves, herbs. The balance is just right. One of my favourites. Drink now or keep for another decade (or more).

    December 27, 2018 - Alas.my last bottle. Still the finest of the Valpolicelli. Now, with an hour or two in the decanter, much more integrated, more chocolate and leather with the cherry more subdued-- and the briary notes more blended than before . The viscosity remains a percentage of the amarone, and the dark black color deepened>there was a bit of a sharp kick in acid for the first half hour. I would drink these now as I do not believe there are destined for much greater aging.

    November 26, 2018 - Wow, quel beau vin, ample et dense mais bien équilibré.
    Des prunes et du cassis avec des fleurs et de l`anis.
    Les tannins sont assez fins et la finale bien longue
    et enveloppante. De la classe ici, excellent.
