    "Monte Lodoletta" Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG 2010 <br>MAGNUM in OWC

    Three years after the Annata, Romano and his sons launch a small edition of the same vintage in the magnum bottle. SUPERIORE.DE

    "Rich, impenetrable ruby with violet. Very concentrated and at the same time very finely drawn in the nose, full of blackberries, elderberries, then also figs and dried tomatoes, a dream of nose! Very juicy at the beginning and during the course of the wine, again with lots of dark berries, fresh and juicy, many layers of fine-meshed tannin, deep and with a long final of dark tobacco. Falstaff

    "Like a gymnast, this focused red shows both power and grace. Finely meshed flavors of blackberry puree, fig cake and Earl Grey tea leaf are framed by refined, dusty tannins, with a lasting finish expands on the palate with spice and smoky mineral details." Wine Spectator

    "Aromas of roses and other flowers with a deep fruit intensity. Full-bodied, dense and ultra-fine with a beautiful texture. Lots of new wood now but this will amalgamate with time into the wine. Fabulous potential." James Suckling

    "This was an excellent vintage in much of Italy, but unfortunately the weather was not as pleasant in this specific area of the Valpolicella. The season saw a lot of rain, and a good amount of fruit was cut and left on the ground because it could not be used. Considering these difficulties, Michele Dal Forno tells me he is "more than happy with the results." I tasted the 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta next to the 2009 vintage, and having these two wines side by side reinforces just how different they are. The 2010 vintages is sharper, more pointed and direct in comparison, and there is a tiny point of sourness on the close. This wine does not reach the same threshold for fullness, density or richness. It does come close. The wine's residual sugar measures between 5 and 6 grams per liter, which is normal for this wine, and the bouquet is redolent of familiar black fruit, raisin and spice." Robert Parker
