Natalie's Score: 92/100

Lush and modern Amarone, smoky and juicy with ripe dark fruit, liquid black cherry, cedar underbrush, spice cake, espresso coffee flavours, toasty on the palate. Produced by Sandro Boscaini. Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara and Oseleta wine grapes spend a long time drying on bamboo racks and the blended wine is matured for three years or more in oak casks. Pair with prime rib. Drink: 2019-2028. Score - 95 (Natalie MacLean, nataliemaclean.com, May 6, 2019).

Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico food pairings: leg of lamb, cheese, venison stew, hearty lasagna.

Reviews and Ratings

Masi Riserva Di Costasera 2013 is a rich, opulent Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico from the Veneto wine region. This is the party-size (1500 ml) version of this beautiful, full-bodied red. Generous red berry, sweet cherry, savoury herb, dark chocolate flavours on the palate finishing spicy and long. Tannins are dusty. Good to go now! "Costa" means slopes and a "sera" means westward as the vines are planted in a way that benefit from the reflections of light and mild climate of Lake Garda. They are planted with the indigenous Veronese grape variety, Seleta. Pair with prime rib. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
