Masi Mazzano Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2011
The Boscaini family keeps a unique collection of fine wines in its private cellars, produced in limited quantities and only in the best years, which the family likes to share with lovers of Masi wines. The Mazzano Cru is an austere and majestic wine, the prototype for Amarone. The grapes come from the eponymous vineyard, famous for the quality of its produce since the XII century, and are laid out in traditional drying lofts during the cold winter months. Impenetrable, deep ruby red colour. Intense and complex aromas of baked fruit and spices on the nose with hints of spices such as cloves and cinnamon with coffee beans. Remarkable on the palate for its imposing structure and soft, silky tannins. Warming alcohol is well balanced with pleasing acidity. Long finish dominated by marasca cherries.
