Region: Veneto, Italy
Varietal: Blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella & 5% Molinara
Tasting Notes: 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. Opaque dark red. Intense, super-ripe fruit, cinnamon, vanilla. Warm and satisfying, baked fruit, sweet spices, cooked cherries, cloves, dry and long finish. Attractively long finish.
Ideal with red meat, game and mature cheeses. Fine after-dinner drink.
