Brand Masi
Alcohol/vol 15%
Powerful, complex aromas of dried plums, with 'balsamic' (anise, fennel, mint) traces. Quite dry (not sweet), soft and with bright acidity, with baked cherry, chocolate and cinnamon flavors and structured, noble tannins. Food Pairing: Grilled or roasted red meats, game, and hard cheeses like parmesan. Considered a 'wine for meditation,' to be sipped on its own, this is also a perfect after-dinner wine.

Ripe dark fruit, nutmeg, clove and tobacco aromas lead the nose on this bold and balanced wine. The rich palate delivers black plum, raisin, cinnamon, black pepper and licorice supported by velvety tannins and fresh acidity. Combining elegance and power, it boasts wonderful depth. Drink 2015-2025.

"I like the austere yet generous character to this Amarone with cocoa powder, dark berries and fresh lemon rind. Some wet stones as well. It's full-bodied yet firm and fresh. Clean and bright finish. Drink or hold."

Beautifully balanced and integrated, this offers sweet dried cherry and date fruit, as well as savory accents of loamy earth, herb and smoke. Fresh and focused, with a silky texture that carries a streak of minerality on the finish. Drink now through 2030. 40,000 cases made.
