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
A special cuvée of Masi’s flagship Costasera Amarone, the Riserva comes from the hillside vineyards that face the “sera”, or sunset, and thus benefit from the extra reflected light and mild climate of Lake Garda. There is both loose red soil over Eocene limestone and tightly packed red soil over basalt.

WINERY
The best clusters of grapes were picked and laid out on bamboo racks in special lofts. By mid-February the grapes weighed forty percent less and had acquired great concentration; they were gently pressed after partial destemming and fermented for forty-five days in a mixture of large Slavonian oak barrels and stainless steel vats. Fermentation continued in 30-40 hectolitre barrels for thirty-five days. The wine was aged for up to forty months in 600-litre Slavonian and Allier oak casks, with a third new oak.
