Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is Masi’s gentle giant. A benchmark for the Amarone category, which, together with Barolo and Brunello, makes up the aristocracy of the Italian wine world. The product of Masi’s unrivalled expertise in the appassimento technique, whereby traditional grapes for the Valpolicella Classico area – Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara – are laid out on bamboo racks to concentrate their aromas during the winter months.
Grape: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara
The colour is very dark ruby red, aromas of baked fruit, plums and cherries. The baked fruit comes through on the taste with hints of coffee and cocoa.
Excellent as an after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails and richly flavoured dishes. Very good with well-aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola.
Decant at least one hour before serving.
Storage: stored well this wine will age beautifully up to 35years.
