Dal Forno Romano

Dal Forno Romano

Romano Dal Forno comes from a family of winemakers by tradition and vocation.
A perfectionist at heart, he is the one who leads the change of course of the winery in the heart of the Verona area (Cellore d’Illasi) and who builds a farm where a workaholic rigor and a revolutionary method are put at the service of the search for perfection.
Among the many innovations of Dal Forno, the automatic grape ventilation system, which preserves the optimal conditions for drying and prevents the onset of mold and the hyper-technological management of the cellar. From the control of the tanks to their washing system, from the temperature to the punching times, in fact, everything is completely automated and in the absence of oxygen – by means of nitrogen, therefore – without the addition of sulfur.
From this mix of maniacal precision, experimentation, knowledge and respect for the territory and the grapes, the myth of Cantina Dal Forno was born, inextricably linked to Amarone and Valpollicella.
The family vocation was also passed on to the next generation. Today, in fact, they work alongside Romano and his wife, their sons Luca, Marco and Michele.

  • This is a powerful, elegant and vigorous wine, as conceived by the founder of this wonderful business in Val d’Illasi, ancient and evocative territory that bears witness to the profound ties between humans and nature. We find this passion in Amarone Dal Forno Romano, a true meditative masterpiece.
    The grapes that bring this emblematic wine to life are Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta and Croatina but only grapes harvested from vineyards that are at least ten years old are destined for the Amarone. This wine is also distinguished by how long the grapes are dried for – three months, double the usual duration for Valpolicella.  The result is a truly exciting explosion of power and elegance.
    The ruby colour that tends towards an intense an decisive deep purple portends character, as if to prepare one for an experience that will leave its mark… Complex aromatic notes surface in the nose, scents that evoke black cherries, blueberries, but also chocolate, coffee and tobacco. On the palate, the taste is extraordinary, confirming all of the olfactory sensations that have been anticipated – but it still astonishes with a final sumptuous and persistent finish that encompasses notes of truffles, tobacco and leather.

    A wine that will certainly draw attention to itself and be talked about.

  • The tasting experience of Romano Dal Forno’s Valpolicella Superiore is a particular journey to discover a wine that surprises for its complexity, the result of the same rigorous processes that the winery itself implements to produce the most famous Amarone. It is surprising to find such an extraordinary wine starting from such a stringent specification but which is taken to extremes by the will of the producer.

    Soils of alluvial origin consisting mainly of gravel and partly also clay and silt are those on which the Dal Forno vineyards are located, at a variable altitude up to 350 meters above sea level. After a manual harvest extended over time and separated, which takes place between mid-September and the end of October, the best grapes are left to rest and dehydrate for 45 days before the cellar operations and then the long aging in two distinct phases.

    The greatness of this wine is already evident from the behavior in the glass: slow in movement, concentrated and very intense ruby, it releases a wide nose that ranges from red and black fruit in vanilla jam, to sweet spices and chocolate.

    A pleasure to hear him put to the test the taste buds, certainly entranced (and inebriated) by so much richness, such as to impress even the most rigorous international critics.

    2013 was not an easy year in Valpolicella, where climate change certainly impacted production and put a strain on the technical skills of the cellarmen: unexpected but interesting results emerged from the harvest, superlative those achieved by Romano Dal Forno’s Valpolicella Superiore.
