Masi Riserva di Costasera Amarone. Italy

£49.95
Quantity:

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, and continue to use it in two of their celebrated “Supervenetian” wines.

Tasting Notes

Plums and baked cherries on the nose with hints of bay leaf. Magnificently rich and soft on the palate with rich cherry and blueberry flavours and some sweet spice. Long, dry finish with a touch of fresh blueberries.

A special cuvée of Masi’s flagship Costasera Amarone, the Riserva comes from the hillside vineyards that face the “sera”, or sunset, and thus benefit from the extra reflected light and mild climate of Lake Garda.
