Lobenberg: Ein tolles, extrem rares Weinpaket mit zwei phänomenalen, am Markt ausverkauften Traum-Jahrgängen ( 2x2008+1x2009) von dem Kultwinzer Romano Dal Forno. 'Man muss es wirklich probiert haben, um es zu glauben.' Wie oft liest man diesen Satz? Trösten Sie sich. Man möchte ihn viel öfter schreiben als man darf. Und wenn man ihn mal wieder angebracht hat, holt einen sofort das schlechte Gewissen ein. Trotzdem: 'Man muss es wirklich probiert haben, um es zu glauben.' Selten war dieser verbotene Satz wahrer als bei diesem Produkt italienischer Großmannssucht. Wie konnte man bloß auf die Idee kommen, rote Trauben zu trocknen, damit sie 50 % ihrer Flüssigkeit verlieren, um dann trockenen Wein daraus zu keltern. Man mag sich gar kein Bild davon machen, wieviel Sorgfalt und Akribie zu dieser Passion - anders kann man das Arbeiten von Romano Dal Forno nicht beschreiben - gehört. 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! 97-100/100


Suckling über: Sammlerbox: Family Reserve Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta (3 Flaschen)

-- Suckling: Suckling zu 2008: Wonderful aromas of rose petal, blackberry, sugared walnut and hints of sea salt. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a warm, enticing palate with dried fruits, blackberry, black olive and freshly cracked slate. Fabulous Amarone. 97/100Suckling zu 2009: This is powerful and very rich with blueberries, flowers and hints of spices. Full body with velvety tannins and ripe fruits. Very beautiful and generous but not overdone. Superb. 98/100


Parker über: Sammlerbox: Family Reserve Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta (3 Flaschen)

-- Parker: Parker zu 2008: Production was skipped over in 2007 due to extreme hail damage. The fruit that would normally be destined to Amarone went to the lower tier Valpolicella Superiore instead. The 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta marks a return to a slightly cooler vintage with a longer growing season slowed down during the summer's moderate temperatures. Indeed, harvest was wrapped up during the first days of November. The blend is mostly Corvina, at about 60%, with smaller parts Corvinone, Rondinella, Croatina and Oseleta. The new Dal Forno winery was finished in 2008, complete with the unique vacuum-sealed fermentation tasks that help to avoid any intrusive oxygen during winemaking. Indeed, this wine is balanced and elegant with fruit that is still crunchy and very much alive. The tannins are firm and nicely integrated into the wine's thick, fleshy consistency. This vintage is characterized by a very elegant and graceful approach, which must be taken into context given the enormity of a wine of this caliber. Happily, there is no doubt that this vintage should still evolve steadily over time. 96/100Parker zu 2009: The Dal Forno family considered the idea of releasing their Amarone ten years after the harvest. If that plan had been implemented, this would be the vintage on the market now. The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is a full and generous expression that delivers thick lines and robust flavors of dried blackberry, camphor ash, exotic cedar wood, licorice and tarry road pavement. This vintage saw average temperatures throughout the growing season with a few hailstorms along the way. Very dry weather led to some mild drought in July and August, with ensuing ripening and concentration of the clusters. I found this monumental wine to be irresistible when I first tasted it five years ago, and I consider it to have improved since then. This is one of the most complete and comprehensive vintages produced at Dal Forno, and it gives us an ample 360-degree view onto the might, brawn and potential of this icon wine from the Veneto. Its evolutionary track shows no sign of slowing down. 99/100


Galloni über: Sammlerbox: Family Reserve Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta (3 Flaschen)

-- Galloni: Galloni zu 2008: The 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella is compelling. With a little air, the tannins begin to soften, releasing a myriad of intense dark aromas and flavors. Bittersweet chocolate, cloves, violets, plums and blackberry jam cover every inch of the palate in a stunning, headspinning Amarone that captures all of the best qualities of the year. When Romano Dal Forno's wines are on, there is nothing quite like them, and that is certainly the case here. If opened young, the 2008 needs a little air. Actually, a lot of air. 98/100Galloni zu 2009: The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella is one of the most sexy, open-knit young Dal Forno Amarones I can remember tasting. An enticing mélange of mocha, black cherry, bittersweet chocolate and leather captivates the senses. Incredibly open today, the 2009 can be enjoyed with minimal cellaring or aged for twenty years, perhaps beyond. Although the 2009 doesn't quite reach the heights of the truly epic vintages here, it comes very close and will provide considerable pleasure sooner than many of those wines. I don't think I have ever tasted a young Dal Forno Amarone with this much allure. 95/100
