(2008 Vintage) A landmark Amarone that has often acted as the category's biggest ambassador abroad. It bursts open with aromas of dark berry, spice, leather and tobacco, and it is both generous and long lasting on the palate.
Have loved this wine for years but the best night so far was having a bottle in honor of Andrea Bocelli the night we saw him in Tampa, FL. The most spectacular evening of music, great wine, awesome company (my spouse) and that amazing voice of Bocelli's! Row 4 didn't hurt either! SO worth the money!
Nice smell notes of dark fruits, soft and sweet strawberries and cherries, touch of leather and coffee. Well balance y full body with fruits and touch of coffee. Delicious !

Wine & Spirits(2007 Vintage) The entry-level 2005 Amarone Classico della Valpolicella Costasera is made in a fairly straightforward, fresh style, with perfumed bright red fruit supported by silky tannins. This harmonious red offers excellent depth and lovely balance. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015. Masi is one of Veneto-s most historic houses. I was pleasantly surprised by this string set of wines, which far outpaces last year-s offerings.
