Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG “Costasera” by Masi
Majestic, complex, exuberant: it is the gentle giant of Masi, a point of reference for the Amarone category, which together with Barolo and Brunello represents the aristocracy of the Italian reds. It is the result of Masi’s authoritative expertise in the drying technique: the indigenous varieties of the Valpolicella Classica Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara rest on bamboo racks in the winter months concentrating the aromas.
Very intense ruby red colour. On the nose stand out aromas of cooked fruit, plum and cherry. On the palate it is rich in fruity hints, with notes of coffee and cocoa. Extremely balanced. It goes well with important and tasty dishes, grilled or roasted red meats, game, tasty and slightly spicy cheeses (e.g. Parmesan cheese). Great wine after a meal.
