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.

Tasting Note 鑒賞:
The 2003 Valpolicella Superiore comes across as shockingly primary for a five-year old wine. Masses of jammy dark fruit flow onto the palate in a concentrated, generous style. The firm tannins are those of the torrid 2003 vintage, yet this broad-shouldered, expansive wine has more than enough fruit to provide balance. Notes of chocolate, leather, coffee and sweet spices gradually emerge with air, yet this remains a backward, unyielding wine at the moment. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2020.
這款2003高級維波利給人的驚人印象它主要是一款五歲酒齡的葡萄酒。 濃密的黑醬果在一個濃縮而豐厚的風格當中流到口感裡. 堅厚的丹寧是那些熱情的2003 年份, 然而，這種寬厚而豪爽的葡萄酒擁有著綽綽有餘的水果去提供平衡. 點點的巧克力, 皮革，咖啡和甜香料在空氣逐漸顯現, 然而，此刻 這口感仍然是一款倒退 而固執的葡萄酒
