2012 Masi Amarone Mazzano
2012 Masi Amarone Mazzano Tobacco, prune and blue flower aromas mingle with a whiff of spice and sunbaked earth. Full-bodied and enveloping, the palate features raisin, licorice and baking spice before finishing on a note of bitter almond. Supple tannins offer polished support. Drink through 2027.
With roots in Valpolicella Classica, Masi produces and distributes Amarone and other premium wines inspired by the values of the Venetian territories.
The use of native grapes and autochthonous methods, and the research and experimentation carried out by its Technical Group, make it one of the most famous producers of high-quality Italian wines in the world.
The Masi story began in 1772, when the Boscaini family acquired prestigious vineyards in the small valley called “Vaio dei Masi”, which is the origin of the company’s name. After more than 200 years of passionate winemaking the company is still in family hands, run by the sixth and seventh generations.
A benchmark in the art of producing Amarone at a world level, Masi constantly innovates and passes on its expertise in the Appassimento method, which has been practised since the time of the Ancient Romans. For more than forty years, Masi has carried out an ambitious project of development for historic wineries.
Providing a unique approach to production, research and development in winemaking, the Group is made up of experts from different disciplines: agronomists, oenologists, and experts in quality control, marketing and sales.
Co-ordinated by Raffaele Boscaini, the Technical Group works with national and international institutions and universities, such as: l’Institut des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin di Bordeaux, Udine University, the Catholic University of Piacenza, the CRA-VIT Research Centre, Verona University and the Department of Agrarian and Environmental Sciences of the University of Milan. Research results have proved significant and have helped develop the quality of Masi wines and other wines from the Venetian territories.
