Hello everyone. My first wine write up on Instagram (I tagged FB profile with this too). What can I say? Masi Costasera Amarone 2012 (5 Star vintage). Last time 5 Star vintage was bestowed was the 2006 and 2007 vintage which makes this wine a great collector for your cellar. Available throughout Ontario at a steal of a price, $39.05. (Current $4.00 off limited offering, regular price is $43.05) One of the most respected Amarone on the market. I love this wine, great with pasta and cheeses. Full, lush, loads of cherry with a seductiveness on the pallet and velvety finish.
This is a wine that is approachable now; but will benefit to aging (up to 20+ years in proper conditions). I have a bunch 2006, 2007 that I plan on sharing with Boom Boom and AJ when they turn 19 because you know why?
