PAIRING Meat, Cheese, Pasta

The Boscaini family acquired the first vineyard in Valpolicella at the end of the 18th century and, since 1772, has been interpreting the values of its home territory to perfection through its wines. The vineyards are rooted in the 'Vaio dei Masi' valley (hence the winery's name) and enjoy an excellent position, one of the most important in Valpolicella, a fact that can be deduced from the range on offer, which can be defined in one word: impeccable. The Amarone Costasera Riserva stands out in the battery, proud, majestic and exuberant, a wine that is a benchmark for the category and that together with Barolo and Brunello represents the aristocracy of Italian red wines.

Intense, impenetrable ruby red, it smells of dried red roses, sandalwood and cloves, then dark notes of underbrush, cola and resin, with balsamic hints of eucalyptus. The taste is rich, consistent and robust, with vigorous tannins and a subtle but sharp mineral verve accompanying a powerful but well-blended alcohol. Endless finish of jammy red fruit.

The Winery

The history of Masi corresponds to the history of the Boscaini family, one of the most important families in Italian viticulture. A history inextricably linked to that of its vineyards: the winery's name derives from 'Vaio dei Masi', meaning 'little valley of Masi', a vineyard located in Negrar, in the heart of Valpolicella, which the Boscaini family acquired at the end of the 18th century and where everything began. Over the course of time, the company has grown further through successive acquisitions in the classic areas of Valpolicella, Bardolino and Soave, which have always been suited to a viticulture that aims for excellence, also benefiting from the collaboration of the Serego Alighieri Counts, who belong to the descendants of the poet Dante. It has also developed projects in Tuscany, Rovereto (Trento) and Argentina. Today, the company is managed by a well-coordinated team of experts with Sandro Boscaini as President and CEO, well supported by his daughter Alessandra, responsible for administration and sales. In addition to the special attention paid to the selection of vineyards, the Masi company is above all committed to safeguarding the autochthonous techniques of viticulture, with a centuries-old tradition, with constant updating towards innovation. The result is products of absolute value, in which the uniqueness and character of each individual wine is exalted, keeping faith with a precise style. Masi is a leader in the production of historic wines such as Amarone, made using the appassimento technique, with the "Mazzano" and the "Costasera" Riserva, always at the top of Italian and international wine guides. It has also rediscovered and improved the double fermentation technique that gives life to 'Campofiorin', ironically nicknamed 'Supervenetian' and, still in the classic Veronese area, it is a protagonist with white wines such as Soave 'Levarìe', from Garganega and Trebbiano grapes. Considering its holdings in the prestigious Trento DOC, the 'Altemasi' line, a rib of the famous and historic Cavit cooperative, is the perfect bubbly for every occasion.
