Masi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera 2003
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Amarone della Valpolicella|
Wine EnthusiastThis is a solid, steady wine that deftly delivers perfectly measured doses of cherry, plum, black currant, brown sugar, chocolate dust and almond nut. Fruit flavors are integrated seamlessly and come on the heels of the wine's solid structure. Drink it with crispy pork roast or pasta with a meat reduction sauce.
Wine SpectatorThere's a slight raisiny tinge to the fruit, with cardamom, fresh oak and just a whiff of black truffle at the start. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a clean, mineral finish. The refined texture adds a touch of finesse. Better than previously reviewed. Best after 2008. 32,915 cases made.
