2012 Masi Costasera Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico DOCG

$53.95
JS94

From the always-reliable Masi comes this Amarone from the “evening slope.” Suckling loved its “Lots of complexity 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.” Just reading that makes us so thirsty!
