Masi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Costasera 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"An aromatic floral thread accents this finely meshed red, which layers light tannins and tangy acidity with flavors of black currant, juicy cherry, cocoa powder, chai tea, fig and smoke. A fine balance of both finesse and grip. Drink now through 2030...93" WS 10/11

Amarone Costasera is the perfect choice for those who are not already familiar with this unique category of Italian wine. The wine is extremely balanced and well integrated with elegant tones of ripe berry fruit and spice. It also promises to pair with beef, lamb or pork.

Pretty blueberry and cherry aromas on the nose, with lovely intensity. Full-bodied, round and juicy, with loads of fruit and a soft, caressing palate. Long finish. So good now. Drink now through 2018.

Costasera, one of Masi's most popular expressions of Amarone, can be depended on for its consistent quality year after year. This vintage offers concentrated color and pretty notes of toasted nut backed by cherry, blackberry and mesquite wood. The wine's flavors are bright and fresh, the mouthfeel is clean and polished.

Masi Amarones are typically strong candidates for the cellar, and this is a prime contender. For now, it's constricted within black fruit skin tannins and oak char. With air, it yields scents of violets and blackberries, and a kernel of flavor set to expand with age.

The entry-level 2005 Amarone Classico della Valpolicella Costasera is made in a fairly straightforward, fresh style, with perfumed bright red fruit supported by silky tannins. This harmonious red offers excellent depth and lovely balance. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015. Masi is one of Veneto-s most historic houses. I was pleasantly surprised by this string set of wines, which far outpaces last year-s offerings.

Dunkles Rubinrot, undurchsichtig und fast schwarz. Wirkt in der Nase sehr konzentriert und fruchtig, Pflaumenkompott, Würze, Holz und Brotrinde. Im Gaumen mit süsslichem Auftakt, Kompott, Amarenakirschen, Dörrfrüchte. Sehr dicht mit präsenten und feinen Tanninen. Ist trotz seiner Jugendlichkeit schon sehr zugänglich und besticht mit elegantem und langem Abgang.

Kräftiges Rubin, fast purpur. Dicht gewobene Nase von gedörrten Pflaumen und reifen Zwetschgen, auch etwas gedörrte Aprikosen. Weich fliessender Gaumen von wiederum sehr reifer Frucht, auch Kirschenkompott, Zwetschgen und Rosinen, elegante Tanninstruktur, enorm ausdauernd.
