James Suckling:”The flagship: 70% corvina, 25% rondinella and a smidgeon of the oft-forgotten molinara for welcome freshness. Only south-west facing hillside fruit is used for the Amarones here, promoting a longer and slower appassimento process. Often the grapes are still on the vine come November, with extended appassimento on traditional bamboo racks. The formidable level of dry extract is consummate across a spread of bitter cherry, amaro bitters and dried herbs, strewn across the long, impressive finish. I like this. A wine for drinking rather than for the mantle. A very good opening act.” 93 Points

Robert Parker: “Vintners in Valpolicella love the 2015 vintage because it produced the dry conditions and warm temperatures that are perfect for appassimento, or air-drying fruit. The Masi 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera opens to a dark-garnet and velvety-rich appearance. The bouquet offers lots of depth and power, especially in terms of those savory tones of smoked spice and leather. The spice frames a core of baked fruit and sweet blackberry confit. This is a round and supple blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Molinara (aged mostly in Slavonian oak with some Allier for up to 30 months). Production is a generous 620,000 bottles.” 93 Points (2015)
