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

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.

The nose showed rich black cherry, spices and tree bark, yet there was something animal about this wine that truly balanced the seductive fruit. On the palate, it was large scaled and rich, with cherry and spice, yet still feminine and graceful. The finish was long yet fresh.

Deep, almost impenetrable, ruby red, with violet colored edges. Fruits of the forest, especially blueberries, on the nose, but licorice and vanilla, too. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, but soft and velvety at the same time. Excellent balance between tannins and acidity.

From one of Amarone’s premier producers, this delicious Amarone delivers generous black cherry flavors, with hints of raisin, white pepper, nutmeg and chocolate. It’s soft and round, with smooth, velvety tannins and compelling intensity.

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.

Rich and earthy, with a note of forest floor, this tobacco-laced version is firm and structured. The fine texture carries a core of plum compote, coffee, treacle, date and licorice. Offers a lasting finish of grilled herbs. Drink now through 2024.

More vinous than most of its Amarone cousins, Masi’s Costasera is bright, plummy and zesty up front, then rich with toffee flavors and the fruitiness of coffee beans in a mocha java finish. The texture is smooth and elastic, a supple pleasure for a thick cut of aged beef.

Dunkles, dichtes Rubinrot. In der Nase herrlich intensiv duftend nach reifen Pflaumen, Fruchtkompott, süssen, warmen Gewürznoten, komplex und finessenreich. Im Gaumen saftig, vielschichtig und dicht, wiederum feine, reife Aromatik, Erinnerungen an den Rumtopf werden wach. Eine Komposition süss-reifer Früchte mit einer sehr harmonischen Tanninstruktur, begleitet von einer eleganten Säure und langem, aromatisch nachhaltigem Abgang.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

<p>Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes, this Italian Amarone is a full-bodied wine which enhances the flavor of red meats, game, and sharp cheeses.</p>
