    (2006 Vintage) This '90 only confirms the remarkable quality of the amarone vintage (both for growing and drying of the grapes). And it also demonstrates another important attribute of '90 amarone: the convergence of the dynamic and potent traditional style with accessibility. That's not to say the massive, raisined fruitiness of this wine is ready to drink. Rather that its lively, gregarious appeal reaches beyond a rarefied cult following. There's plenty of freshness here for long bottle age, which will bring the scale of the wine and its detail into sharper focus.
