Masi Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico Serego Alighieri Vaio Armaron 2003

Member Review by Eric Guido:

The nose showed ripe black cherry, herbs, minerals and a hint of barnyard. I truly Italian wine in that earthy, wild and sexy way that makes so many of us fall in love with Italy. On the palate, it was smooth and burst with spicy cherry jam and cherry wood, dry but with velvety tannin, which promises over a decade of development. The finish lasted for over 30 seconds and added cocoa and aged wood to the canvas. I truly loved drinking this wine.

Serego Alighieri is a wine produced by descendants of celebrated Medieval Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the Valpolicella region of Italy. The Alighieri family settled in Valpolicella after Dante was exiled from Florence for his political beliefs. The Seregos and Alighieris have been bound by marriage since the 1500s. In 1973, Count Pieralvise Serego and neighbor Sandro Boscaini went into partnership to produce wines from their vineyards, and producer Masi Agricola handled the bottling, marketing and technical aspects. In the 1970s, Valpolicella had been suffering from a reputation for cheap “plonk”, and the idea was to create something of far better quality than these mass-produced wines to once again elevate the perception of the region. The wines have since attracted many fans and continue to be produced adhering to strict quality standards. It is from their example that regional producers have an international market for their value-driven products.  Read less
