There’s only one Dal Forno, the undisputed master of Amarone. Why not treat yourself to one of the greatest dessert wines ever made in Italy? This is a recioto, or sweet, Amarone, that is from another planet. The Wine Advocate describes “a masterpiece that is impossible to repeat. In fact, the wine has not been produced since 2004…a generous flow of dark spice, bitter chocolate, espresso, raisin, plum, barbecue spice and teriyaki smoke. The concentration and layering of the wine are both rare and distinctive...I can think of no other wine that comes close to matching this unique style.” Drizzle this heavenly elixir in your mouth, on strawberries, or even on someone you love, and float away on its magic carpet.

Wine Advocate

The 2004 Vigna Sere is the perfect conclusion to a vintage that will go down as one of Dal Forno's most magical. Sweet, silky tannins support layers of super-refined, elegant fruit in this magical sweet red. Mocha, espresso, new leather, raspberry jam and spices emerge with time in the glass, but this is really a wine that shows off textural finesse more than anything else. I have tasted this wine many times since it was in barrel and later in bottle. It has never been anything less than spellbinding. It is one of the most magical sweet dessert wines I have ever tasted...
