Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico “Mazzano” by Masi Cantina Privata Boscaini
The Boscaini family’s private cellars hold a rare and treasured collection of fine wines, only produced in the finest years and in limited quantities, which they are proud to share with those who appreciate Masi’s exceptional offerings. Among their prized offerings is the Mazzano wine, a true symbol of Amarone. This austere and stately wine hails from the historic Mazzano vineyard, known for its high-quality produce since the 12th century, and is made from grapes that are carefully laid out to dry in traditional lofts during the winter months.
The vineyard’s ideal orientation and altitude, along with its fertile hummus-rich limestone soil, impart a distinct personality to the grapes and the wine they produce. The natural drying process concentrates the grapes’ flavors and aromas, while the wine’s austerity is complemented by soft tannins and a velvety elegance.
Masi, in the 1950s, was a trailblazer, introducing the concept of “single vineyard” to Italy and solidifying their reputation as a company dedicated to showcasing the unique characteristics of the Valpolicella region’s terroir. Their Amarone and Recioto wines, sourced from the region’s renowned cru vineyards, are the epitome of this commitment, offering not only a window into the region’s exceptional land but also possessing distinct styles and recognizable traits, making them a true reflection of the region’s rich winemaking heritage.
