    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red color with violet tinges to the edges. Clean, very powerful and complex on the nose with good alcoholic backbone amid the sweet aromas of dried prunes and raisins. Soft and dry on the palate with typical baked cherry flavors mixed with hints of cocoa and cinnamon. Attractively long finishing and full-bodied with soft tannins.

    Amarone is a full-bodied wine for grilled or roasted red meats, game, and strong tasty cheeses, such as Parmesan.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Costasera, one of Masi’s most popular expressions of Amarone, can be depended on for its consistent quality year after year. This vintage offers concentrated color and pretty notes of toasted nut backed by cherry, blackberry and mesquite wood. The wine’s flavors are bright and fresh, the mouthfeel is clean and polished.

    We took this as a special occasion wine to our favorite BYOB Italian steakhouse and it was a perfect pairing, rich and fruit-forward with a very mellow finish. I am a firm believer that Cab's best pairing is dark chocolate and Amarone is #1 with steak! This was great.

    Bought a bottle (along with a Zenato Amarone 2004) to select one as Christmas gifts. Expected them to taste much better and more complex than either did. Original shipment was lost and bottles were reshipped. Perhaps that impacted the taste. Not sure why, but both were a disappointment.
