Proud, majestic, complex, exuberant, it represents a special selection of Costasera, Masi’s gentle giant. It is the benchmark for the Amaroni category, which along with Barolo and Brunello represents the aristocracy of Italian reds.
Here Masi’s authoritative Appassimento expertise is interpreted with a long over-ripening of the grapes on bamboo racks and a minimum of three years of aging in noble wood. The skillful use of native Valpolicella Classica varieties Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara is enhanced by the presence of the original Oseleta, rediscovered by Masi.
