Masi Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2016 1500ml

Masi Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2016 1500ml

$227.00

I love the semidried, cranberry-like fruit base to the aromas, decorated by notes of very dark chocolate and coffee bean. Medium-to full-bodied with a very silky, refined feel to the palate. Tight bead of super clean fruit and fine, polished tannins. Long yet tight, crystal-clear finish that lingers. Exquisite Amarone. The tight, focused and balanced nature to this makes you want to drink it now. But it will get even better with some bottle age. Try from 2023.
