MASI Nectar Costasera Amarone Classico

The nectar of Valpolicella is without doubt the Corvina grape variety. Compared to the other two indigenous auxiliary grapes – Rondinella (used for structure) and Molinara (used for spiciness and acidity) – Corvina is the variety that provides the softness and cherry-tinged fruitiness typical of wines from the Verona region. Nectar Costasera is based on exactly these considerations. The increased percentage of Corvina used gives greater fruitiness, softness and drinkability. Impenetrable ruby red. The nose is filled with stewed fruit, cherry and vanilla. The palate has cherry with hints of coffee and cinnamon. Extremely balanced. Pair with main-course dishes, grilled or roasted red meats, game, strong cheeses or on its own at the end of a meal.

The Wine Blend Trend

Are wine blends a fleeting fancy or are blended wines here to stay?
Wine blends are all around us You could call it “Group Love” – or, more appropriately, “Grape Love.” If you look on the shelves of a liquor store or wine shop, it seems wines are a lot less monogamous when it comes to the grape varieties inside. While wine purists may think it is sacrilege, blending...
