Costasera Amarone is a wine that’s ideal for a cold winter’s night. If you are a fan of great Amarone, you do not want to miss this. It’s rich but balanced, and there’s a staggering array of flavours on display. Buy a few extra bottles and age this and see how it evolves. You’ll be glad you did.
This deep ruby-red wine has powerful, complex aromas of dried plums and balsamic (anise, fennel, mint) traces. Quite dry (not sweet) on the palate, soft and with bright acidity, the wine shows flavours of baked cherry, chocolate and cinnamon. Structured but noble, delicate tannins precede a long finish.
“This opens beautifully to reveal violets, blueberries, licorice, citrus, oyster shell and orange rind. So velvety and polished, but with real depth and structure. Medium-to full-bodied with delightful fruit and a long finish. Drink in 2021 but already so satisfying.”
Masi wines are modern, attractive, well-balanced and easily identifiable; characteristics which have earned Masi recognition for having “revolutionized the art of wine-making in the Venetian region.” Hugh Johnson defines Masi as “a touchstone for Veronese wines.”
