2012 Masi Costasera Amarone

 

$69.99 $39.99

Winemaker Notes:

Powerful, complex aromas of dried plums, with ‘balsamic’ (anise, fennel, mint) traces. Quite dry (not sweet), soft and with bright acidity, with baked cherry, chocolate and cinnamon flavors and structured, noble tannins.
Pair with grilled or roasted red meats, game, and hard cheeses like parmesan. Considered a ‘wine for meditation,’ to be sipped on its own, this is also a perfect after-dinner wine.

Critical Acclaim:

“94 points.

“Lots of complexity comes through from the outset on the nose, borne out in terms of smoky black cherries, dried rose stems, asphalt, tar and licorice. Full, structured body that dives through layers of dark fruit, driven along by active acidity all the way to the long but not cloying finish.” – James Suckling

“92 points.

“The Masi 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera is a plump and rich wine that portrays the opulent characteristics of this hot vintage. Dark blackberry is followed by sweet tobacco, baking spice, tar or resin. This beautiful Amarone glides smoothly over the palate imparting dense extraction and dark fruit flavors along the way. The wine has the natural constitution to hold strong for the next decade.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
