The Masi story begins in 1772, when the Boscaini family acquired prestigious vineyards in the small valley called “Vaio dei Masi”, hence the company’s name. The company is still family owned and run by the sixth and seventh generations. We adore the easy, almost lazy complexity seen in this wine, the layers and long finish feel effortless on the palate. Suckling loved this Amarone from the ‘evening slope’, “The balance in this Amarone is so beautiful with chocolate, berry, walnut and cedar character. Medium to full body, polished and silky tannins and a flavorful finish.” 
Another fantastic effort from the slopes (Costasera) that face the sunset, drink a glass watching the sunset and be jealous that those grapes enjoyed that view all summer and fall.

The balance in this Amarone is so beautiful with chocolate, berry, walnut and cedar character. Medium to full body, polished and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Always in balance. Wonderful to drink now.
