Osar is a wine that defies expectations, possessing an unexpected depth of structure and complexity. It boasts a full-bodied profile, rich color, and ample tannins, making it a standout among its peers. The secret to Osar’s unique character lies in its main ingredient, the ancient Veronese grape variety Oseleta. Rediscovered and replanted by Masi in the 1980s, this grape imparts a distinct flavor profile to the wine and is a testament to the winemaking prowess of the Masi technical team.
This modern interpretation of the Venetian winemaking tradition is a triumph of the Masi team, who took on the challenge of bringing Oseleta back to life and incorporating it into their winemaking process. The name Osar is a reflection of this bold endeavor, with “osare, rischiare” meaning “dare, risk” in Italian and “osar” meaning “cry out with joy” in the Veronese dialect. It is a true celebration of the cultural heritage of the Venetian regions and an historic legacy that will be treasured for generations to come.
