Masi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera 2007

SKU 1513201007


Deep opaque red with violet tinged edges. Rich, powerful bouquet with aromas of baked fruit, cooked with herbs and spices. The alcohol content plays its usual role in cutting the sweetness on the palate. Cherry fruit preserve and cinnamon are the major components in a long-lasting and attractive finish. Amarone is a full-bodied wine for grilled or roasted red meats, game, and strong tasty cheeses, such as parmesan. Generally considered a wine for meditation, it is a great after-dinner wine.

Wine EnthusiastCostasera is a dark, brooding wine that boasts a dark side, aromatically speaking, in the form of Indian spice, clove, cola, cured meat, bresaola, blackberry and currant. The mouthfeel is dense, chewy and very, very opulent.
