Masi Riserva di Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva 2016

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 fi nest 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.

Colour

Bouquet

Plums and baked cherries, with hints of toasted coffee.

Flavour

Majestic and elegant, cherries preserved in spirit, and bitter cocoa. Attractively long finish.
