2012 Masi Amarone della Valpolicella Riserva Costasera image

This wine is only the third release for the Riserva and by law they have to be aged for an additionoal year so it is released on the third year. The ancient Oseleta varietal is also included in the blend in place of a percentage of the Corvina and these grapes are dried a bit longer. Has a smoky game like character to the dark berry fruit, dark cherry liqueur like fruit nice complexity on the nose has a more rustic quality and this is due to the Oseleta which has lots of tannins unlike the other varietals used in this region. Exotic spices, wild game, very rich and unctuous on the palate with smooth silky tannins with dark spices, coco and a long finish, big but still fresh and balanced. Finish 45+ Most Excellent
