MASI Costasera Amarone Classico

  • Valpolicella
  • Italy, 750ml

“A really fresh and well-balanced Amarone here, with tapenade, ripe but fresh blackberries, chili chocolate and some red berries, too. This is tight and juicy, with a medium-to full-bodied palate and a long, fruity finish. A modern, fresh expression of Amarone that shows immense drinkability, but still pretty serious. Not super-concentrated, but shows restraint and balance.” James Suckling

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.
