VC: Sourced from a centuries-old vineyard, this extremely limited Amarone from Masi is delicious now but has decades of cellaring potential. Aged for three years in oak and a further six months in bottle, this powerful, full-bodied wine is layered with intense aromas and flavors of baked cherries, dried plums, blackberries, vanilla and sweet spices. A powerful wine that is nonetheless elegant. A must-have for Amarone’s ardent fans and collectors. My note: A masterful producer of Amarone. This wine is loaded with black cherry liqueur notes as well as pencil, dried herbs and baked earth. Food matches: stuffed mushrooms, hamburgers, meatloaf, Italian cheese bread, fried chicken.
