Description

Amarone Costasera Masi was born in the vineyards overlooking Lake Garda, in the Valpolicella Classica area and is one of the landmarks of this type of wine, which together with Barolo and Brunello symbolizes the aristocracy of Italian reds. The Costasera di Masi is the result of the winery's long experience in the drying technique.

Masi's Amarone Classico Costasera is produced from Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes, all harvested and selected manually. The harvested grapes are placed on bamboo racks that favor ventilation between the bunches by limiting the formation of mold. The grapes remain on the racks during the winter, thus concentrating sugars and aromas, thanks to the slow drying. Once the ideal drying has been reached, the grapes are pressed and sent for alcoholic fermentation. Most of the wine thus obtained is aged for 24 months in Slavonian oak barrels, the rest in barrique.

Amarone Costasera Masi is characterized by an intense ruby red color. The nose opens with an intense bouquet of cooked fruit, plums and cherries. On the palate it is fruity, enriched by aromas of coffee and cocoa, which make it a refined, balanced and pleasantly elegant wine.

This wine is perfect to accompany red meats and roasted, braised and stewed game. It also goes very well with aged cheeses.


Why is Amarone Costasera Masi so called?

Amarone Costasera bears this name because the Masi winery believes that the coasts facing the sunset, in Valpolicella Classica, are the best for the production of a great Amarone.

These are the vineyards that enjoy the longest sunlight and that take advantage of the reflection of the light that shines on Lake Garda. Thanks to these particularly favorable climatic conditions, the grapes here reach perfect ripeness.

Amarone Costasera is also available on the market in the Riserva and Nectar version, which contains a higher percentage of Corvina grape, which gives even more softness and roundness to this wine.


Is it better Amarone Masi or Bertani?

It is difficult to answer this question, as they are two of the best Amarone we have in Italy. The answer can only consider the objective sides of wine, as our sommeliers do when they provide the description of the organoleptic profile, to then leave room for personal taste.

Let us remember that often the goodness of a wine also affects the occasion or the company with which we drink it!
