Romano Dal Forno
Romano Dal Forno is regarded as “King of Valpolicella” nowadays. Romano Dal Forno was born in 1957 in the village of Capovilla, a couple of kilometers away from Illasi, in a family which had been engaged in wine production. At the age of 22 Romano was lucky to meet the Great Master of Amarone, Giuseppe Quintarelli. That acquaintance became a revelation for him and pushed him towards choosing a right target. In 1990 a new winery was built, it uses modern technologies while maintaining the traditions of these famous wines. Instead of Slavonian-oak casks, habitual for local winemakers which were used from year to year for aging Amarone, Dal Forno started to use 225-litre barrels made of new French oak (barriques). And naturally, wine of a new crop was aged in new barriques; also the wine would not show up for sale before a long period of up to 5 years. Later some experiments were made with a partial aging in barriques (up to 2 years) and then another 4 years in bottles. The great richness of Dal Forno's wines is derived from the extremely low yields of this artisan's 12.5-hectare estate outside the Classico zone. His dense, creamy Valpolicella is among the best of the Veneto, and we find here formally dressed as a white passito dessert wine.
現在戴福諾酒莊被稱為維波利之王, 而羅馬諾. 戴福諾 (Romano Dal Forno )出生於1957的卡波比亞(Capovilla )小鎮中, 在伊拉西 距離幾公里外. 而他們家族在經營葡萄酒的生產.
在羅馬諾的22歲, 幸運地遇到阿瑪羅尼的大師級人物 '喬治白. 昆塔雷利' ( Giuseppe Quintarelli) . 這刻的相識造就了一種對他的啟示而推著他選擇正確的目標.
而本地釀酒商的習慣於用斯拉夫尼亞橡木酒桶來陳化阿瑪羅尼( Amarone). 但戴福諾酒莊開始用225升的新的法國橡桶木桶來陳化.

Dal Forno’s 2002 Amarone is a first-class effort in every way. The wine reveals loads of ripe, generous fruit that flow onto the palate with stunning intensity. This remarkably pure Amarone possesses incredible detail in its dark wild cherries, chocolate, herbs and toasted oak. The tannins build mightily on the finish even if this isn’t one of Dal Forno’s most massive wines. There is a lot of purity and depth here, although the tannins could use a little more polish. At first I thought this might be a relatively early-maturing wine but when I came back to an unopened bottle after two-plus days it had barely budged! Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017.
從各方面來看, 戴福諾酒莊的2002阿瑪羅尼( Amarone) 是一個高水平的佳釀. 這釀透露出成熟而豐厚的水果用一種驚人的密度流入口感裡. 這阿瑪羅尼純釀擁有令人難以置信的細膩在其黑櫻桃，巧克力，香草和烤橡木。而丹寧構成了餘韻即使它不是戴福諾酒莊最好的酒. 這款佳釀都有大量的純度和深度, 雖然丹寧可以使用多一點潤飾. 首先我以為這可能是一個相對早熟的酒釀, 但是經過兩多日後. 當我一回來開了一瓶未開封的葡萄酒, 它幾乎沒有變化！ 適飲年份 2009-2017
