Masi Amarone Classico Riserva Costasera 2007

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.

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.

Fantastic wine. Has a hint of smokiness to it. Very smooth, good balance. Perfect with lamb chops

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.

Masi is one of the historic wineries in the Veneto going back over 200 years. Family owned and run by the sixth generation of the Boscaini family. The sloping vineyards where the grapes are grown for this Amarone Classico Costasera face the sunset. With a longer day, vines that face Lake Garda bask in reflected light, receiving more sunlight, soft breezes and produce the best quality grapes. 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."

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.

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. - Monica Larner Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

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.
