Masi Valpolicella Classico Bonacosta 2008
Masi production strategy aims to emphasize the personality of each single product, while maintaining a recognisable Venetian style. It is as congenial as a brother's house (Hemingway). Masi makes this modern-styled wine from traditional Veronese grape varieties (Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara). This is excellent with many dishes, from soups to grilled meats. It is also delicious with pasta. On the nose, there are aromas of violets, roses and mint combined with cherries and spices such as cinnamon and cloves. Well-structured, fresh and full-bodied.
The Boscaini family have been the owners of the Masi vineyards for six generations. Sandro Boscaini is the company president. The other members of the family involved are Sandro's children: Alessandra and Raffaele, and his brothers: Bruno who looks after the production processes, and Mario who is a sleeping partner in the company.
