Had a ‘12 over 2 years ago, last bottle!! In 1958, Masi was in the forefront of the work to identify the historic "cru" vineyard sites for Amarone. This ‘12 is a big rich powerful wine from a hot vintage. Deep Ruby, purple tints, 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 soft tannins, ling finish, well balanced ending with smoky spice. Very Nice. Aging well, still has plenty or room left!! A joy!

I. Did not. Enjoy this. But why? It shouldn’t be spoiled yet, should it? So bitter.

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)

I’ve had this Amarone a few times. Not it’s best vintage, but still a good wine with the right food. I’m not sure aging it any more would have made it any better to be honest.

Smoky aroma, ripe plum and cherries, herbal, not overly complex. Had with Bazils pizza.
