Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is Masi's gentle giant. A benchmark for the Amarone category, which, together with Barolo and Brunello, makes up the aristocracy of the Italian wine world.

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Very dark ruby red

Nose: Baked fruit, plums and cherries

Palate: Fruity tastes, with hints of coffee and cocoa. Very well balanced.

Food Paring: Excellent as an after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails and richly flavoured dishes. Very good with well-aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola.

Varieties: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara

You're reviewing:Masi Costasera Amarone Classico

Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is Masi's gentle giant. A benchmark for the Amarone category, which, together with Barolo and Brunello, makes up the aristocracy of the Italian wine world.

The product of Masi's unrivalled expertise in the appassimento technique, whereby traditional grapes for the Valpolicella Classica area - Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara - are laid out on bamboo racks to concentrate their aromas during the winter months.

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Very dark ruby red

Nose: Baked fruit, plums and cherries

Palate: Fruity tastes, with hints of coffee and cocoa. Very well balanced.

Time spent in oak barrels of various sizes and ages gives the wine a velvety and round texture that's simply unforgettable, even long after it's left the palate. Plum, fig, and jammy notes call for hearty dishes such as Osso Buco, but sharp cheeses such as parmesan.

Food Paring: Excellent as an after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails and richly flavoured dishes. Very good with well-aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola.

Varieties: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara
