In 1958, Masi was in the forefront of the work to identify the historic "cru" vineyard sites for Amarone. The ‘12 is a big rich powerful wine from a hot vintage. Aromas of ripe dark fruits, cooking spice and smoky notes. On the palate blackberry flavors, raisin like plum tones with cacao and cinnamon spice. Rich tannins, soft, lingering well balanced ending with smoky spice. Very Nice. Tasting Sample.

Classic straightforward amarone. I find it a bit lacking in complexity but the flavors are pure : plum, cherry, a bit of anise and leather and something herbal reminiscent of Rhône garrigue. Good length. Full bodied (over 15% abv)

Excellent wine with lamb, celebrating my wife’s birthday. Soft tannins long on the back, fantastic!

Intense vibrant, lip smacking Amarone. Upfront sweet touch transitioning into a deep dark, dry fruit. An explosion of flavor.
