Wine Tasting NotesThe wine has an intense straw-yellow color. The intense and fragrant bouquet is characterized by floral (wisteria) and fruity (apple, pear, bananas) notes. On the palate, it has a pleasant acidity, good freshness and intense taste. Medium bodied. The over-ripened Verduzzo leaves a delicate hazelnut note on the finish. A unique wine with a distinct personality, Masianco balances the clean, white fruit and citric acidity of Pinot Grigio with the complex, buttery, tropical fruit notes of Verduzzo.

The 2007 Masianco from Masi is a blend of 75% Pinot Grigio and 25% Verduzzo. It is a simple but refreshing white to enjoy over the next year or so. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2009.
Deep straw yellow colour with greenish reflections. Complex and attractive on the nose with refreshing hints of citrus fruit and apricots. Easy drinking qualities on the front palate gradually give way to greater depth; delightfully soft and full-bodied. Flavors include ripe apples and a slight touch of honey. Dry and long on the finish.
Year after year, Masi rolls out one of the most interesting Pinot Grigio blends to come out of northern Italy. The Masianco difference is the slightly overripe Verduzzo component (25%) that adds mature fruit intensity and structure. Masianco is a clean and genuine wine, with floral fragrances and a crisp close.
Straw-yellow with a gold tinge. Pleasantly sweet aromas of fully ripe apricot and tropical fruit jump from the glass, with hints of cinnamon and brown sugar adding complexity. The palate is rich with grapey, tangerine and almond flavors; there's a hint of sweetness but harmonious acids keep this fresh and lively. Offers a lovely rich mouth feel but the persistent finish shows noteworthy freshness. This unique blend of grapes is a very successful one; although not terribly complex, the wine is irresistible in its juicy, grapey appeal.
