MASI Riserva Costasera

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. Opaque ruby red. On the nose, plums and baked cherries, with hints of toasted coffee. The palate is majestic and elegant, cherries preserved in spirit, and bitter cocoa. Attractively long finish. Ideal with red meat, game and mature cheeses. Fine after-dinner drink.

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...
