Considered the modern-day king of Amarone, Romano Dal Forno makes his signature wine from the Veneto with Corvinone, Rondinella, Croatina, and Oselata grapes that are carefully dehydrated on bamboo mats for three months before pressing to intensify the sugars in the juice. After aging in French oak for two years, the resulting wine—a monumental feast for the senses—must be tasted to be understood. ($440)
