Romano Dal Forno's Amarone 'Monte Lodoletta' represents not only one of the most important and prestigious labels from the Valpolicella area but also absolute excellence in the broader panorama of the Italian wine world. It is not simply an excellent Amarone, it is a great red wine that conquers for its elegance, complexity and aromatic depth. It is a splendid expression of the territory's tradition, interpreted in the pursuit of the highest quality. The very long ageing period in barriques allows the wine to achieve harmony and an expressive balance of extraordinary elegance and finesse.

Amarone della Valpolicella 'Monte Lodoletta' is one of the flagship labels of Romano Dal Forno, who manages a 25-hectare estate in Val d'Illasi. The hilly area northwest of Verona has always been suited for the cultivation of red grapes. The calcareous soil and the mild climate, influenced by the breezes from nearby Lake Garda, provide a perfect habitat for indigenous grape varieties: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. The winery is the result of the experience of four generations of winegrowers and the decisive meeting with Giuseppe Quintarelli, another illustrious name from Valpolicella. From that moment on, Dal Forno's work followed the path of the search for absolute quality, with an extraordinary commitment in the vineyard to try to obtain wines that were a perfect expression of the territory and its best customs.

The Amarone 'Monte Lodoletta' wine from Romano Dal Forno's famous winery is made from a blend of the grapes traditionally grown in this wonderful hilly area: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. The harvest is carried out with a selection in the vineyard of only perfectly ripe and healthy bunches. The grapes are placed in the drying loft for about 4 months so that they lose water and concentrate the aromas and sugars. The wine matures for at least 60 months in barriques before being bottled. It has a dark ruby-red colour. The nose expresses an elegant bouquet with aromas of ripe red fruit, cherry, plum, liquorice root aroma, soft spices, hints of bitter cocoa and chocolate. The palate is broad, warm and enveloping, with dense, persistent aromas and smooth tannins. The finish is long and very harmonious. Romano Dal Forno's wines are a point of reference and a beacon for the entire Valpolicella region.
