Masi Grandarella Appasimento. Italy


Though run by the Boscaini family for six generations, it is really in the last fifty years that Masi has established itself as one of the Veneto’s most innovative wine producers. In the late 1950s, they identified certain historic vineyard plots which are vinified as Amarone and bottled separately to this day. In 1964, they launched the now-legendary Campofiorin, which revived the technique of a second fermentation with semi-dried grapes. Masi have also rescued the ancient Oseleta variety from extinction.

Tasting Notes

This Amarone-style wine offers an attractive nose with a distinct aroma of plum jam. A big wine on the palate with excellent ripe berry fruit flavours: elegantly balanced and supple in texture.

Grapes for this supervenetian are sourced from selected Masi vineyards on the “Strà del Milione” estate at Castions di Strada in Friuli.
