The 2006 Dal Forno Valpolicella Superiore Monte Lodoletta is a study in depth and richness. Completely opaque in the glass, with an inky robe of Quinacridone purple. Layered aromatics of dust, Italian plum, violet and cedar. Massive on the attack, with firm tannins that gradually subside to reveal a viscous and concentrated framework of blackberry reduction steeped in thyme, dried black cherries, bakers cocoa and peppercorn. The finish is bone dry and savory.

Nice and easy drinking valpo. Great with pasta. Not too much of the raisiny, dried fruit but just enough to tel you you’re in Veneto.

Good aroma. Takes time to open. A bit herbaceous finish which lessened over time
