The Veneto is known to be a land of great wines. The Valpolicella, located near the shores of Lake Garda, is the place where this Masi Costasera Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2013, proud and majestic wine, great pride of Masi Agricola.

Amarone is considered as one of the greatest representatives of Italian excellence in red wines. It is a wine born from the experience demonstrated by the Masi winery in the drying technique: the three varieties of grapes used in the production of Amarone, Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, all native to Valpolicella, rest on bamboo racks during the winter. Thanks to this technique, the grapes lose up to 35% of their weight, but acquire a higher sugar concentration.

A small curiosity: the vineyards are cultivated on the coasts facing the sunset of Lake Garda. The soft light and temperate climate enjoyed from this position allow a perfect ripening of the grapes.

I like it with the meat we ate. It was served at a wedding.
Deep colour at first sight. Smell of coffee or wood. This Valpolicella stands out for its warm and balanced character.
