Amarone Classico Riserva 2011 Costasera, Masi
Masi is one of the historic wineries in the Veneto going back over 200 years. Family owned and run by the sixth generation of the Boscaini family. The sloping vineyards where the grapes are grown for this Amarone Classico Costasera face the sunset. With a longer day, vines that face Lake Garda bask in reflected light, receiving more sunlight, soft breezes and produce the best quality grapes. For this Riserva 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. High praise all around for this including The Wine Advocate who scored this 94 points and said "This is a beautiful wine by the technical winemaking team at Masi. The 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Costasera opens to a midnight black appearance and thick concentration. On first nose, you really get a sense of the power and depth of this wine. The bouquet is redolent of dried blackberry and plum with spice, barbecue smoke and cured meat. The wine is textured and powerful in terms of mouthfeel with a thick coating of dark flavors that wrap thickly over the palate. Masi's Riserva Amarone shows great results in warm vintages like this."
