Masi Amarone Costasera Riserva 2015
Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is a special cru version of Masi's gentle giant, Costasera. A benchmark for the Amarone category, which, together with Barolo and Brunello, makes up the aristocracy of the Italian wine world. Here Masi's unrivalled expertise in the Appassimento technique is used to give the grapes a long period of further ripening on bamboo racks and an ageing period for the wine of at least three years in casks made from the finest wood types. The expert use of indigenous grapes for the Valpolicella Classica area, Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, is enriched by the addition of the unique Oseleta, a grape variety rediscovered by Masi
Opaque dark red. Aromoas are intense, with notes of super-ripe fruit, cinnamon, and vanilla. The palate is warm and satisfying, with baked fruit, sweet spices, cooked cherries, cloves, and a dry and long finish.
