Valpolicella Superiore is the result of the same strict criteria adopted to produce Amarone. Sine the 2002 vintage, the grapes that become Valpolicella have been undergoing a drying process that lasts approximately one and a half months. The result is an intense and aromatic wine that boasts a higher class than the one where tradition and territory have been placing it. To the palate it presents hints of vanilla, blueberry, blackberry, cherry, chocolate, sweet spices and confiture. This wine is suited to accompany and enhance rich dishes featuring red meat, grilled and braised meats as well as seasoned and strong flavored cheeses.

This is a terrific wine that stood out-and stood tall-despite the fact that it was tasted alongside some of Dal Forno's most important vintages of the top-shelf Amarone. If that's not a full-on recommendation, I don't know what is. The 2013 Valpolicella Superiore Monte Lodoletta oozes forth with thick concentration and an inky black color. The mouthfeel is thick and impenetrable, and the senses are treated to a long succession of black fruit, tar, spice, smoke, mesquite and barbecue flavors. The wine is full-bodied and very opulent, but it carries that massive intensity with grace and precision. This Valpolicella Superiore is very nicely done.
