Masi Amarone Classico Riserva Costasera 2007
Dunkles Kirschrot; das mächtige Bouquet erinnert an Kirschenkompott, Pflaumen und Dörrfruchtnoten. Im Mund sehr warm, weich und schmeichelnd. Majestätisch im Gaumen, wiederum Kirschen- und Blaubeerenaromen, begleitet von süsslichen Gewürznuancen. Langes und trockenes Finale mit feiner Säure.

Editorial Reviews for Masi Amarone Classico Riserva Costasera
Fine on the nose with well delineated aromas of minerals and dark fruit that is peppery with grilled meat notes. Polished and rich on the palate but with good clarity to the soft dried red fruit, red cherry flavors. The palate is firm with soft tannins, but this remains very easy to drink turning fairly complex on the back end with mineral driven flavors that lead to a clean, long and slightly grippy finish. Show a nice interplay of red fruit and minerality. 89pts
Had it in Huntington Beach
This is our most favourite wine ever. It is full bodied and spicy, yet smooth. It has a higher specific gravity, usually above 15%, but due to the way it is made this should be no surprise. I would always recommend this wine.
Fantastic wine. Has a hint of smokiness to it. Very smooth, good balance. Perfect with lamb chops
Excellent wine. Smooth red.
Nice and tart with slight road tar overtones

The sloping vineyards where the grapes are grown for this Amarone Classico Costasera face the sunset.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 95 points and said "Ripe dark fruit, nutmeg, clove and tobacco aromas lead the nose on this bold and balanced wine. The rich palate delivers black plum, raisin, cinnamon, black pepper and licorice supported by velvety tannins and fresh acidity. Combining elegance and power, it boasts wonderful depth. Drink 2015-2025."
A classic interpretation, the 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera offers power and personality. The bouquet shows your standard Amarone aromas of sweet spice and overripe fruit. But Costasera adds class and finesse thanks to the slow way in which the wine evolves in the glass. The mouthfeel also treads with a delicate pace. Its silky texture never feels too heavy or overburdened.

The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera is a richly layered Amarone that shows youthful energy and budding complexity despite the fact it is only at the beginning of its evolutionary course. Immediate layers of dried fruit and pressed blackberry peel back to reveal etched mineral tones, loads of tobacco, exotic spice and even a hint of bitter chocolate. Like many of the best Amarones on the market, this wine is distinguished by its exceptional mouthfeel: Softness, thickness, sweetness and dark concentration are among its best assets. Drink 2015–2024.

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