2001 Dal Forno Romano Valpolicella

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2001 is on another level entirely. It exudes notable warmth and ripeness, with profound layers of Venezuelan bitter chocolate, herbs, licorice, smoke, dark fruit and toasted oak. Made in an explosive style, this palate-staining wine possesses remarkable detail and nuance for such a big wine. It has been phenomenal on the two occasions I have tasted it so far. (AG) (10/2007)

93 points Wine Spectator

A dense, tightly packed red, with currant, raisin, pungent earth and oak. Full-bodied, with well-placed tannins and a long, youthful mineral and fruit finish. A powerful, promising young wine. Give it time. (JC) (4/2007)

Jancis Robinson

From magnum. Impenetrable, dark ruby. Enormous depth, but on the whole rather poised for Dal Forno. Opulent yet compact. Powerful fruit and richly tannic on the finish, yet balanced. (WS) 17++/20 points (3/2018)
