1995 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella Superiore

SKU #991075 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 1995 Valpolicella is an amazing effort, with an opaque dark ruby color, as well as an explosive nose of smoke, earth, jammy berry and blackberry fruit, great richness and purity, full body, and abundant glycerin and intensity. Remarkably, there is little evidence of new oak, even though the wine spent 36 months in barrel before being bottled without filtration. It tips the scales at a whopping 14.5% alcohol, high for Valpolicella. It should drink well for 10-15 years. (RP)  (8/2000)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Amazing Valpo. Aristocratic. Wonderful, with black currant, berry and mint aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with polished tannins and a long, sweet, fruity aftertaste. Builds on your palate. Still needs time. Best after 2002. (JS)  (11/2000)

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
