MASI MAZZANO AMARONE CLASSICO 2009

Masi

$213.00

Grapes: 75% Corvina, 20% Rondinella, 5% Molinara.  

Estate: Veneto

Colour:  Opaque ruby red with faint brownish reflections. 

Nose: Powerful and elegant on the nose with aromas of cherries in spirit and plums with a hint of incense.

Palate: Firm and magisterial on the palate with hints of bitter cherries and blueberries. The good alcohol level makes this very satisfying and supports a complex aftertaste with flavours that range from vanilla to chocolate with a surprisingly long finish.

Food Pairings: Good with red meats, game, quail and other full flavoured foods. Excellent with strong cheeses such as parmesan and pecorino. Also a great after-dinner wine.
