In the 1950’s, Masi was a pioneer in establishing the cru or “single vineyard” concept in Italy. Masi Agricola combines traditional and technology, or what owner Sandro Boscaini calls, “modern wines with an ancient heart.”

“These are unique and particular wines. They should create a sense of friendship, history and culture,” states Boscaini in the short film, Masi a Story of Values and Passion. “The Veneto’s values are here in Venice and are revealed by the colors, the particular light, its art and culture. This is the great culture of Veneto: the same culture that can be found in our wines.”

Join Mauro Maugliani, Italian Brand Specialist, Southeast United States, Kobrand Corporation who will guide guests through a five-course epicurean adventure:

Masianco Pinot Grigio e Verduzzo delle Venezie with Mignonette oyster

A fresh white wine, aromatic and fruity in style; the unmistakable result of combining Pinot Grigio delle Venezie with the Appassimento technique, Masi's specialty.

Amarone Costasera

Riserva di Costasera Amarone della Valpolicella Classico with Taleggio cheese and spicy fruit mostarda

Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is a special cru version of Masi's gentle giant, Costasera. The expert use of indigenous grapes for the Valpolicella Classica area - Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara - is enriched by the addition of the unique Oseleta, a grape variety rediscovered by Masi.

Amarone Serego Alighieri Vaio Single Vineyard with Pappardelle with porcini mushrooms and aged Parmesan cheese

Serego Alighieri Vaio Armaron Amarone della Valpolicella Classico with a wild boar ragù and polenta

These wines are icon wines of the historic Serego Alighieri estate and comes from the eponymous vineyard, the source it seems of the very name Amarone itself. Its elegant personality is enhanced by the use of the Serego Alighieri clone of the Molinara grape and by ageing in cherry-wood casks, as family tradition dictates.

Mazzano Amarone della Valpolicella Classico with "50 Shades of Cheese" plate

Mazzano is an austere and majestic wine, the prototype for Amarone. The grapes come from the eponymous vineyard, famous for the quality of its produce since the XII century, and are laid out in traditional drying lofts during the cold winter months.

About Masi Agricola

Masi earned the "Winery of the Year" title in the Three-Glass Italian Wines Guide 2018 from Gambero Rosso,

With its deep roots in one of Italy's best wine regions, Valpolicella, Masi makes quality wines that are an expression of the values of their territory of origin. Principally using native grapes and indigenous methods for the Venetian territories, Masi makes what Sandro Boscaini, the guiding light in the company, likes to call "modern wines with an ancient heart", using constant technological updates. Today, Masi is a leader in the production of Amarone and has acknowledged expertise in the Appassimento technique.

Grape Appassimento is the traditional method used in the Venetian regions to concentrate aromas and tastes in wine. The grapes are laid out on bamboo racks in drying lofts for the winter period before vinification. This is an ancient technique, in operation for centuries in the area, the art of which has been passed down the Boscaini family and employed in an innovative fashion by the Masi Technical Group to make modern wines from semi-dried grapes, above all, Amarone.
