Grandarella Appassimento. Agricola Masi 2010

Member Review by Andrel:

This wine is produced using the "appasimento" method normally used to produce Amarone, but instead of using Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, it is produced using Refosco (a local Italian varietal) and Carmenère, thus the name "Supervenitian" used to characterize this "Rosso Delle Venezie" IGT. With a dominance of tobacco and a bit of Cherry, this is a well made wine that would gain to stay in the cellar another couple of years (wait till 2010) and definitely gained by being decanted. At this price, this is a good "weekday" alternative to an Amarone.
