Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella 1999

Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella 750ml 1999     
Sku: 9717

Fermentatedin temperature controlled stainless steel at about 30 degrees celsius; immersion of the cap every 90 minutes for 6 days. No malolactic takes place since drying of the grapes lowers the malic acid. Aged in new barriques for 22 to 28 months, in bottle 1 year.

Tasting notes
Deep ruby-red color, ripe, port-like aromas of hazelnut and raisin, very sweet and rich on the palate; a floral note adds flavor, finishes very long.

 Wine Spectator 92 points (May 15 2005)
Meaty black fruit, fresh herb and smoky oak on the nose. Full-bodied and tight, with firm tannins and a long, minerally finish. Big and chewy. A sledgehammer of a wine, but I like it a lot. Best after 2006. 750 cases made. –JS
