About Castello Bonomi

The Paladin family, who has been making estate-bottled wine for about 60 years, owns several estates across Italy, from the Veneto to Tuscany, but... perhaps their most famous and most distinct is Castello Bonomi, in Lombardy’s Franciacorta region. With vinicultural history that dates back to medieval Benedictine monks, Franciacorta spans about 5,400 acres, but this rare northern Italian region is devoted to one unique style of wine: the best champagne-styled sparklers that you can find outside of France — indeed, it’s the sole DOCG region that permits classic méthode champenoise sparklers. The family-owned-and-operated Castello Bonomi estate is housed in a gorgeous art deco villa built in the late nineteenth century, and the estate’s vineyards sit on 60 steeply pitched acres in a natural amphitheater that rests at the foot of Mount Orfano. These terraced vineyards enjoy a privileged microclimate that includes limestone-rich soils, southern exposures, excellent drainage, and pure sunlight. These elements provide the raw materials that Castello Bonomi’s Chardonnay and Pinot Nero grapes need, while a strict green harvest, low yields, and stringent grape sorting help the estate’s team craft a range of terroir-driven, award-winning Franciacorta wines.

Dal Forno Romano Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2014 750ml

Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2014 In the challenging 2014 vintage, Dal Forno opted against making any Amarone and decided to focus on its Valpolicella Superiore. This stunning,... complex wine shows the wisdom of that choice! Oscillating between sweet cherries and tart blackberries, bright acidity and intense dry extract, juicy fruits and savory underpinnings, this wine is a marvel. Notes of cigar wrapper, licorice, Christmas cake, chocolate and game ebb and flow. This broad-shouldered beauty is nimble and powerful — an absolute must that will drink for decades.

Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2015 Massive, soaring, bold, and stunning, Dal Forno’s 2015 Valpolicella Superiore is a knockout.

Dal Forno Romano Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2012 750ml

Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2012 Dal Forno’s hedonistic, long-aging Valpolicella Superiore may not be for everyone, but the 2012 aims to change that. This is one seriously... enjoyable, heady wine that brims with red and black fruits, pipe tobacco, crushed hazelnuts, peppery spices, leather, and melted chocolate. Vibrant acidity carries the substantial dry extract and chewy tannins into a long, lingering and very satisfying finish.

Dal Forno Romano Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2003 750ml

Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2003 Two decades of age have polished Dal Forno’s big, broad-shouldered 2003 Valpolicella Superiore to a glossy, sophisticated sheen. This wine keeps... its fistfuls of super-ripe cherries, berries, and plums, but now they’re impeccably balanced with sweet, chewy tannins, and elegant, lively acidity. Savory notes of coffee, bitter chocolate, tarry earth, forest floor, and baking spices underpin the sweet fruits in this monumental, beautifully structured wine.

Dal Forno Romano Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2008 750ml

Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2008 Upon release, this 2008 Valpolicella Superiore received heaps of praise for its intensity, kaleidoscopic palate, and relative early... approachability. Now with fifteen years of maturity, this wine is firing on all cylinders — it’s a true “baby Amarone”! Gobs of inky black fruits and crisp red berries are wrapped with melted chocolate, woodsmoke, peppery spices, forest floor, coffee beans, and leather in this bewitching wine. Firm, chewy tannins, electric acidity, and loads of dry extract harmonize wonderfully in this long-aging blockbuster wine.

Dal Forno Romano Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2004 750ml

AVG93
Vigneto Monte Lodoletta Valpolicella Superiore 2004 This massive, inky-dark 2004 Valpolicella Superiore explodes from the glass with a shower of cassis, ripe plums, wild berries and secondary notes... of balsamic herbs, cigar wrapper, dark chocolate, spice, and espresso. Tannins feel firm and chewy, suggesting that even with almost two decades of age, this wine is only now creeping into its drinking window, and it has decades ahead of it. This intense wine is nonetheless detailed and finessed — it just needs more time in the cellar or abundant aeration for true enjoyment.

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia Bolgheri 2016 750ml

Tenuta San Guido Sassicaia 2016 I’m going to be bold and say it: the 2016 Sassicaia is pretty much perfect. A refined, polished, and incredibly detailed expression of an outstanding year, the 2016... Sassicaia is everything you could hope for from this legendary Italian wine. Pure, succulent cherries, blackberries, and plums fruits layer with violet petals, sun-warmed pebbles, pressed wild herbs, spice, and cedar in this epic Sassicaia vintage. Tannins feel chiseled, the acidity is electric, and the savory mineral finish is clean, persistent, and elegant. Give it a year or two in the cellar and then enjoy this legend-in-the-making for decades to come!
