Critical Acclaim

RP94 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st May 2017

"This is a beautiful wine by the technical winemaking team at Masi. The 2011 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Costasera opens to a midnight black appearance and thick concentration. On first nose, you really get a sense of the power and depth of this wine. The bouquet is redolent of dried blackberry and plum with spice, barbecue smoke and cured meat. The wine is textured and powerful in terms of mouthfeel with a thick coating of dark flavors that wrap thickly over the palate. Masi’s Riserva Amarone shows great results in warm vintages like this." (94 pts.)

WE93 Wine Enthusiast 12/31/2016

"Wild berry, leather, tobacco, tilled earth, aromatic herb and floral aromas meld together on this impressive red. The full-bodied structured palate delivers black cherry marinated in spirits, dried plum, chocolate and licorice alongside a backbone of firm velvety tannins. Drink 2018–2026." (93 pts.)

VN91+ Vinous Jan 2017

"Almost impenetrable deep ruby. Oak-dominated nose offers plenty of vanilla and sweet spice that push the ripe black cherry and prune aromas into the background. Then more vanilla in the mouth but with bright, juicy acidity and floral lift providing freshness and precision on the long rising finish. As always the Costasera Riserva, a wine dominated by its Oseleta presence (a grape variety that gives tannic, powerful wines), will need plenty of time to round out. A blend of Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara and Oseleta." (91+ pts.)

SP90 Wine Spectator Web only – 2016

"A bright, medium- to full-bodied red, showing expressive fruit notes of crushed cherry and mulberry, with accents of violet, dried marjoram and kumquat. Creamy tannins turn firmer on the chewy finish. Seems lifted on the second taste. Drink now through 2026. 3,500 cases made." (90 pts.)

Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
