1997 Dal Forno Romano, Amarone, Valpolicella, Veneto, Italy

Dark red. Immensely sweet, with super deep nose. Raisins, Vanilla, blueberry, plum and it's almost too much. The "almost"-dilemma is saved by the great purity the wine posses. The taste is so concentrated and the finish last forever. I drank two glasses of this and it was more than enough for me. What score does one put on something like this? Again the lack of drinking pleasure and the fact that this wine is fascinating stuff is for me in this case not so easy to divide. I hope my comments show that it’s a fascinating and a extremely well made wine, but drink with caution. (97)
