Heiner Lobenberg über:
Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta 2012


Lobenberg: Romano Dal Forno ist der penibelste lebende Winzer. Sein Keller wird geradezu manisch clean gehalten. Das Produkt, hier der Amarone, ist nicht von dieser Welt. Dieser Wein befindet sich auf einem völlig anderen Level, als das was man unter Rotwein oder gar Amarone versteht. Die Präzision ist blaupausengleich. Mit jedem Schluck offenbart sich der Wein aufs Neue. Permanent ist alles in Bewegung, alles ändert sich. Der Wein bleibt aber immer er selbst. Voller unbändiger Frucht und Kraft, wahnsinnig frisch in seiner tollen Säure, rassige Frucht, aber alles umhüllt mit diesem ungeheuer weichen und fetten Tannin. Vorsicht! Reichlich Gänsehaut und feuchte Augen gibt es auch noch dazu! 97-98/100


Suckling über: Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta

-- Suckling: A decadent nose of treacle tart, chocolate, tar, tons of black fruit such as blackberries and mulberries and even ash and licorice. A dense, layered mouthfeel makes for a full-bodied palate that's explosive yet somehow so refined and pretty all at the same time. The finish goes on and on. Incredible now, but better to wait for this giant to settle well into 2020. 97/100


Falstaff über: Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta

-- Falstaff: Undurchdringliches Rubin mit Tendenz zum Schwarz, violetter Rand. In der Nase nach Graphit, Weihrauch, nur leicht nach Brombeeren und Cassis, wirkt etwas verschlossen. Am Gaumen unglaublich dicht, konzentriert, vielschichtig, gleichzeitig zupackend und straff, enorm feinmaschiges Tannin, hat sehr viel dunkle Beerenfrucht, hallt sehr lange nach, endet im Abgang wuchtig und imposant. 96/100


Parker über: Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta

-- Parker: The 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is a beautifully complete wine, even at this young stage in its life. You feel the youth of the wine in the tightness of the tannins and in the finely knit texture of its concentrated flavor profile. The big surprise is the wine's fresh acidity that has been carefully safeguarded despite the heat of the vintage and the drying process so deftly executed at this landmark estate. The wine shows no sign of oxidation or evolution, not yet. There is intricate fruit layering with cherry, blackberry, spice and mesquite delivered with such precision, that level of detail defies the very bold and opulent essence of the wine. It has only just started its evolutionary journey. 96/100


Galloni über: Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta

-- Galloni: There is a massive amount of pleasure to be found in the 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta. It blends elegance with power while contrasting rich dark fruits against sweet herbal tones and spices to create a seductive expression from start to finish. Cherry and plum sauce, lavender, mint and sage can all be found upon first pour, yet it’s the developing notes of rum cake, mocha and licorice that complete the picture perfectly. This is velvety and pliant in texture yet not weighty, all balanced by juicy acids, tart fruits and just a hint of grippy tannins. Dark chocolate mixed with salty minerals under an air of sweet violet florals resonates throughout the finale. All of that said, the endnote here is remarkably fresh, as the 2012 never becomes tiring. This is firing on all cylinders yet with medium-term cellaring potential - but good luck keeping your hands off of it today. 96/100


International Wine Report über: Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta

-- International Wine Report: The 2012 Valpolicella Superiore 'Vigneto Monte Lodoletta' is a fantastic showing from Dal Forno. This dark and brooding wine begins with seductive aromas of ripe blackberries and dark cherries, which are laced with spices, cigar box, flowers, tar and smoky nuances all taking shape in the glass. This is full-bodied and beautifully polished, with outstanding overall balance of ripe fruit and acidity. It continues to impress with incredible depth and concentration through the long, opulent finish. Another sensational Valpolicella from the Dal Forno Family, and while this is outstanding right now, it will also have a long evolution ahead. 95/100


Winespectator über: Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta

-- Winespectator: A velvety, full-bodied version, loaded with blackberry coulis, baked black cherry and tar-tinged smoke flavors that ripple across the palate. Offers lovely accents of dried mint, tobacco, iron and anise that echo on the firm finish. A powerhouse, with plenty in reserve. Best from 2022 through 2032. From Italy. 95/100
