Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is Masi’s gentle giant. A benchmark for the Amarone category, which, together with Barolo and Brunello, makes up the aristocracy of the Italian wine world. The product of Masi’s unrivalled expertise in the appassimento technique, whereby traditional grapes for the Valpolicella Classica area – Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara – are laid out on bamboo racks to concentrate their aromas during the winter months.
Very dark ruby red.
Baked fruit, plums and cherries.
Fruity tastes, with hints of coffee and cocoa. Very well balanced.

Location From the west and south-west hills of vineyards, located on the coasts of the historic production communities (Marano, Negrar, Sant'Ambrogio and San Pietro in Cariano).
Climate After a mild winter and a little rainy spring, the first half of June was characterized by rainfall and warm temperatures, which rose even higher during the second half of July. The combination of such factors caused 15 days advance of the tire phases. In July, the number of grapes was reduced by 15%.
Composition of the land The red lime-containing soil comes from the Eozeny era; in addition still red hard soil on basalt.
Harvest The grape harvest was easily carried out in advance. The harvested amount was lower than the average, but the grapes were high quality. In the Valpolicella area the climate has allowed an ideal grape wilting.
Vinification The Amarone is made according to the old "withering" method, which was known in Roman times. At the end of September / beginning of October, the grapes selected on the hills are placed on the traditional bark of Darren (the so-called "arele"). The Darren are located in fruit stores where natural wilting is controlled by the NASA system. At the end of January, the grapes lost 35% of their weight and got a higher sugar level. Of course, only the Corvina is attacked by the Botrytis, a noble gray horse. After that, the grapes are gently pressed, some of them destemmed, aged for 45 days in large oak barrels from Slavonia or in stainless steel containers at a naturally cold temperature. 35 days of complete fermentation in barrels (30-40 hl) with the addition of alcohol-proof yeast and malolactic fermentation.
Aging 24 months: 80% in Slavonian oak barrels (40-80 hl), 20% in Slavonia small Allier and oak barrels (40% new barrels, 30% second refill, 30% third refill). Then 4 months in the bottle.
Alcohol 15.00% by volume
Total acidity 5.90 gr/L
PH 3.62
Residual sugars 9.20 gr/L
Dry extract 32.90 gr/L
Matching Excellent as an after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails and richly-fl avoured dishes. Very good with well-aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola.
