Wine Region: Veneto - Italy
Grape: Corvina Veronese, with smaller amounts of Rondinella, Croatina, and Oseleta.
Tasting notes: The 2003 Vigna Sere is not a new wine from Dal Forno, rather it is the former Recioto which, in this vintage, the local DOCG tasting commission rejected in its infinite wisdom. The wine possesses incredible richness and density with plenty of super-ripe dark fruit, plums, chocolate and roasted coffee beans. This opulent, generous sweet wine shows excellent balance, even if the tannins dry out somewhat on the finish, something that is unfortunately quite common in wines of this vintage. - By the Wine Advocate
