Masi Bonacosta Valpolicella 2015

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Slightly carbonic nose, shows mineral, and fruity aromas with with peppery accents. Opening with fine young tannins, this is bright and zesty but rather savory and more herbal than fruity on the palate. Clean and fresh on the finish, a bit raw on the nose, and decidedly chalky and slightly astringent. 83pts

Tynd i starten. Efter 5 min. i glasset, åbnes vinen med frugt noter. Dejlig vin til 5€ på tilbud.

Intense bouquet with ripe cherry aromas. Fresh bing cherryflavors with hints of vanilla, good acidity and soft, silky tannins.

A beautiful, lighter-bodied red perfect for Pinot drinkers looking for a change. Vibrant cherry notes with silky tannins and a clean finish. Pair this with salmon or veal.

Moving on to Masi’s traditional wines, the 2011 Valpolicella Classico Bonacosta opens to a dark ruby color and sharp aromas of forest berry, pressed rose, cherry cola and almond. It feels clean in the mouth with bright acidity that cleans the way for the next sip. This is a great option for informal occasions. Drink 2013–2015.

A light, clean and simple red, this ends dry with earthy, red grape flavors; for sausage pizza.

Winemaker Notes - Medium intensity cherry red with edges still youthful. Intense cherry aromas on the nose, very inviting and attractive combined with hints of violets. Instantly noticeable freshness on the palate, with good supporting acidity and excellent balance marked by soft and silky tannins. The biggest fruit component is cherries sweetened with touches of vanilla.

This 2000 offers up bright red cherries, and just a hint of mint tea in its light-styled blend. Try with vegetable lasagna.

Bonacosta is a thin and easy-going Valpolicella that makes a food-friendly companion to pasta, sliced ham appetizers and barbecued hamburger. It offers sharp fruit tones followed by crisp freshness.
