Masi Riserva Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2015

$74.95

A stellar amarone from a fine year - a benchmark for the genre that combines four varieties - 70% corvina, 5% molinara, 15% rondinella and 10% oseleta. This has a terrific nose very complex and layered with all kinds of red plum/black cherry, lifted florals, nougat, forest and mushroom, vanilla and fine spice. It is full bodied yet so smooth and firm. Flavours seep through every pore, and it has such grace for a wine so big. The acid balance is excellent and even at 15.5% the alcohol is in check as well. Great structure and poise for such a big wine. The length is excellent to outstanding.

Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is a special cru version of Masi's gentle giant, Costasera. A benchmark for the Amarone category, which, together with Barolo and Brunello, makes up the aristocracy of the Italian wine world. 

Here Masi's unrivalled expertise in the Appassimento technique is used to give the grapes a long period of further ripening on bamboo racks and an ageing period for the wine of at least three years in casks made from the finest wood types. The expert use of indigenous grapes for the Valpolicella Classica area - Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara - is enriched by the addition of the unique Oseleta, a grape variety rediscovered by Masi.
