Masi Amarone Classico DOC Costasera Riserva Masi Venetien Rotwein 2003

Member Review by Arwan:

This is my absolute favourite of all the Amarones I have tried. The ratio between price and quality is exceptional. Beautiful dark ruby colour, stupendous nose (wild cherries, black berries, plums and vanilla), impressive attack ( a genuine fruit-bomb, this one!), heavy body, round, well balanced, incredibly velvety on the palate, magnificent evolution in the glass, great bouquet, stupendous aftertaste (wild cherries, plums, figs, chocolate, leather and smoke), exceptionally long finish. Needs decanting! I highly recommend this very rare Amarone (MASI's Riserva di Costasera - black label -was only produced in 2003) as a unique wine experience for the genuine lovers.

Four and a half glasses



<p>This classic Amarone is made from mostly Corvina (70%) &nbsp;along with Rondinella , Oseleta, and &nbsp;Molinara grapes in the &nbsp;vineyards of the &nbsp;Valpolicella Classica area. This wine is unique for the presence of ancient Oseleta grapes, the longer drying of grapes (over 120 days) and &nbsp;prolonged aging in wood.&nbsp;</p>
