MASI Amarone Riserva di Costasera Classico

  • Valpolicella
  • Italy, 750ml

Deep, opaque ruby red with purple, almost violet, tinged edges. Intense bouquet of baked fruit preserved in spirit with balsamic touches to the nose. Firm structure on the palate with soft and elegant tannins in evidence and a good dose of acidity. The intense aromas of ripe fruit already seen on the nose come back to give an attractive smoothness to the long finish. Majestic, complex and elegant wine, with great ageing potential.

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 finest 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.

With roots in Valpolicella Classica, Masi produces and distributes Amarone and other premium wines inspired by the values of the Venetian territories.

The use of native grapes and autochthonous methods, and the research and experimentation carried out by its Technical Group, make it one of the most famous producers of high-quality Italian wines in the world.

The Masi story began in 1772, when the Boscaini family acquired prestigious vineyards in the small valley called “Vaio dei Masi”, which is the origin of the company’s name. After more than 200 years of passionate winemaking the company is still in family hands, run by the sixth and seventh generations.

A benchmark in the art of producing Amarone at a world level, Masi constantly innovates and passes on its expertise in the Appassimento method, which has been practised since the time of the Ancient Romans.

For more than forty years, Masi has carried out an ambitious project of development for historic wineries, collaborating with:

  • Conti Serego Alighieri, descendants of the poet Dante and owners of the Valpolicella estate with the longest history and tradition
  • Conti Bossi Fedrigotti, the prestigious brand from Trentino
  • Canevel, producers of top-quality sparkling wines in Valdobbiadene.
  • Masi also owns the organically run estates of Poderi del Bello Ovile in Tuscany and Masi Tupungato in Argentina.

The Group makes wines that are recognised and appreciated in more than 120 countries. Masi is also a partner in groups and associations that promote high quality Italian products internationally, such as: Fondazione Altagamma, Comitato Leonardo, Istituto Grandi Marchi, and Amarone Families.
