MASI Osar 2009 Rosso del Veronese
Osar is a wine with surprising structure and complexity, unusual for its full-bodied nature, colour and tannin content. Made with the ancient Veronese grape variety, Oseleta, which was rediscovered and replanted by Masi in the 1980s, it tells a unique story in the history of winemaking in the Venetian regions and its success is a triumph of the Masi technical team. Look: viscous texture with deep, dark opaque red colour. Nose: clean and complex with hints of blueberries, blackberries and fresh-cut greenery. Palate: strong tannins in a strong wine, well-balanced with good acidity. Long finish. Food Pairing: Big wine with structure and complexity suitable to go with red meat, game and strong cheeses.
