2011 Costasera Amarone Della Valpolicella
Classico DOCG Riserva

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.

2011 Vaio Amarone
An important Amarone with extraordinary power and complexity: a classic in the Italian winemaking portfolio. This is the icon wine of the historic Serego Alighieri estate and comes from the eponymous vineyard, the source it seems of the very name Amarone itself. Its elegant personality is enhanced by the use of the Serego Alighieri clone of the Molinara grape and by ageing in cherry-wood casks, as family tradition dictates. The excellence of this aristocratic appassimento wine has been recognized by Wine Spectator, who have classed it as one of the ten best wines in the world for 2015. Grape varieties: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara (Serego Alighieri clone). Color: deep, bright, ruby red. Nose: complex, super-ripe cherries with baked plums. Palate: cherry and berry fruit tastes. Spicy hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Perfect with red meat, game, quails, roasts and full-flavored dishes. Favorite of this Flight.
