1997 Dal Forno Romano "Vigneto di Monte Lodoletta" Amarone della Valpolicella

SKU #1392617 99 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The outrageous 1997 Amarone (17.5% alcohol) was aged 28 months in 100% new French oak. An inky/purple color is followed by sumptuous aromas of blueberry liqueur intermixed with truffle, graphite, camphor, and vanilla scents. This remarkable offering is immensely full-bodied and super-concentrated, with great purity, symmetry, and length. It is the stuff of legends! How long will it last? Who knows? Certainly this wine is capable of evolving for 15-20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2002)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Impenetrable ruby. Super-concentration but refined and with hints of black olive and fine supporting touch of oak, but no more than that. Minerally notes, too. Enormous intensity and yet superbly balanced and built. Huge tannic structure, but with enormous potential. 17.5+/20 points. (WS) Inner quote mark (3/2018)
