Wine Profile

Tasting Notes Another stunning vintage from Masi, the 2009 Costasera is already showing the beautiful terrior of the Valpolicella region. The nose is loaded with ripe dark fruits, black berries and cherries, and laced with exotic spices and tobacco leaf. The palate is a mix of mineral notes, black currants, spice box and dark chocolate. Incredible ageing potential, I would recommend to drink this tonight or any night for the next 10 years.
Ratings Rated 92 Points Wine Spectator - "Rich and earthy, with a note of forest floor, this tobacco-laced version is firm and structured. The fine texture carries a core of plum compote, coffee, treacle, date and licorice. Offers a lasting finish of grilled herbs. Drink now through 2024. 35,000 cases made. –AN"
Awards Rated 91 Points Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera is a richly layered Amarone that shows youthful energy and budding complexity despite the fact it is only at the beginning of its evolutionary course. Immediate layers of dried fruit and pressed blackberry peel back to reveal etched mineral tones, loads of tobacco, exotic spice and even a hint of bitter chocolate. Like many of the best Amarones on the market, this wine is distinguished by its exceptional mouthfeel: Softness, thickness, sweetness and dark concentration are among its best assets. Drink 2015-2024."
Winemaker Notes Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is Masi's gentle giant. A benchmark for the Amarone category, which, together with Barolo and Brunello, makes up the aristocracy of the Italian wine world. The product of Masi's unrivalled expertise in the appassimento technique, whereby traditional grapes for the Valpolicella Classica area - Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara - are laid out on bamboo racks to concentrate their aromas during the winter months.
Food Pairing Notes Excellent as an after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails and richly flavoured dishes. Very good with well-aged cheeses, such as parmesan, pecorino and gorgonzola.
