oseleta. what a pleasure to drink the 2007 "osar" with some bottle age. it's still a youngster though. i just love the dark fruited character, spices and vivid tannins. a true wine with muscles. kudos to masi for the revivial of this beautiful varietal.

As a huge aficianado of Nebbiolo, the rare varietal Oseleta (from Veneto, Valpolicella zone) is just a massive & tannic dream to me, too. Extincted for ages, Masi, led by il dottor Sandro Boscaini, replanted Oseleta (in the 80s) - one of the very very few growers in Italy and the whole world. What came to life was a wine named Osar (today 100% Oseleta, before blended with a little bit of Corvina; first vintage was like 1997, I believe). Quite dark color, with some violet nuances.. Intense, spicy nose.. Very very austere, especially at the first sip. Brawny, tannic, dark fruits (prunes), licorice, cola, graphite, a bit of campher, some oriental spices. Needs a good load of air to open up. This one is a long-distance runner.. 10 years and the 2007 shows still zero signs of age.. A 1998 one last year was simply terrific (nicely integrated & smoth tannins and fruitcake, prune jam I remember most). Limited bottles, 5000-6000 (0.75l) per year.
