Tasting Notes

WA94
Built like a tank, the 2009 Valpolicella Superiore Monte Lodoletta is a masterful achievement. This wine shows so beautifully, especially in a warm but balanced vintage like 2009. The fruit is expressive and articulate with deep layers of blackberry preserves, dried cherry, dark chocolate, espresso bean, mesquite smoke and soy sauce. The mouthfeel is super rich and concentrated as the Dal Forno signature style would dictate. The tannic bite is still strong and this wine needs a few more years to stretch out its muscular build. I'd suggest drinking it after 2018. Rating: 94+
WS91
A dense, savory red, with rich, smoky minerality underscoring the flavors of cherry compote, graphite, herbed black olive and star anise. The supple tannins form a firm, well-knit frame. Spicy and chewy on the lasting finish. Best from 2017 through 2029. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
