Masi 2013 Amarone Classico "Costasera"

Description

"This opens with aromas of black-skinned fruit, underbrush, tobacco and culinary spice. The full-bodied velvety palate doles out prune, soaked cherry, star anise and mocha wrapped up in polished tannins. It boasts enough fresh acidity to lift the rich flavors. Drink now through 2025." Wine Enthusiast 93 Points

"The 2013 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera employs the estate's same classic blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Molinara, with appassimento lasting more than 100 days. This drying period results in a loss of 35% of the grapes' original weight, yielding highly concentrated sugars. It offers a more approachable and slightly fresher expression, but you still get all that Amarone intensity and power, fueled by dark fruit and spice. The Costasera is a little more elastic and versatile than its peers, especially when it comes to food pairing possibilities, accommodating anything from venison and heavy stews to a lighter pasta fagioli. This is a classic Amarone that delivers all the basic promises of wine made from air-dried fruit. " Robert Parker 92 Points

"Light, taut tannins create a chewy frame for the flavors of wild cherry, cured tobacco, woodsy spice and mineral in this creamy, medium- to full-bodied red. Best from 2020 through 2028." Wine Spectator 91 Points
