TASTING NOTES
This Amarone-style wine offers an attractive nose with a distinct aroma of plum jam. A big wine on the palate with excellent ripe berry fruit flavours: elegantly balanced and supple in texture.

PRODUCER
 
Though run by the Boscaini family for six generations, it is really in the last fifty years that Masi has established itself as one of the Veneto’s most innovative wine producers. In the late 1950s, they identified certain historic vineyard plots which are vinified as Amarone and bottled separately to this day. In 1964, they launched the now-legendary Campofiorin, which revived the technique of a second fermentation with semi-dried grapes. Masi have also rescued the ancient Oseleta variety from extinction, and continue to use it in two of their celebrated “Supervenetian” wines.

VINEYARD
Grapes for this supervenetian are sourced from selected Masi vineyards on the “Strà del Milione” estate at Castions di Strada in Friuli. The soil is sedimentary clay overlaying ancient gravel beds. The grapes were picked deliberately late, at high ripeness.

WINERY
The bunches were laid out in wooden trays for around fifty days, thereby losing thirty percent of their original weight whilst acquiring great concentration. After gentle crushing, the temperature-controlled fermentation lasted forty days. The malolactic fermentation was started while the wine was still in tank. The wine was then transferred to 600-litre Allier and Slavonian oak casks where the malolactic was completed, and it was aged for twenty-four months.
