While Burgundy is our final destination in the wine journey, our founder Alex leaves some space in his heart for Valpolicella after his trip as a blogger in 2016. He was amazed by the unique winemaking from the dried grapes to make some of the most concentrated and fruity wines that could never be copied in any other region around the world. One of the benchmark wines in Valpolicella is Dal Forno, and which is also one of Italy’s greatest wine producers.
To Italian master Ian D’Agata, “Dal Forno’s is the recognized master of a uniquely powerful, ripe, and concentrated style of Amarone”. Due to their consistent, magnificent, quality and tiny levels of overall production, Dal Forno’s wines have gained a loyal - borderline fanatical - following with new releases disappearing from the market almost immediately on release. We are proudly offering 18 bottles of their latest released 2011 vintage at best price in town (arguably best in the world!*), with the domaine’s Amarone della Valpolicella reaching nearly HK$1,900 per bottle, this offers all curious drinkers to explore how great wine from Italy is like from one of the best wine producer in Italy - All in stock at only HK$480/bt and ready for delivery anytime upon payment (market average price HK$594*), this is absolutely a great opportunity while stock lasts –

Fully saturated ruby. Very deep, intense aromas of blackcurrant, plums macerated in alcohol, soy sauce, coffee and underbrush on the complex nose. Rich, dense and balanced, with nicely focused flavors of dark berries and aromatic herbs that have a noteworthy savory tang. The long finish features repeating hints of soy sauce, espresso and underbrush. Dal Forno’s is the recognized master of a uniquely powerful, ripe, and concentrated style of Amarone.
