The slopes facing the sunset are the best ones in Valpolicella Classica for producing high-quality Amarone. Here, where the day is longer, the vines that face Lake Garda benefit from the reflection of its light and from its mild climate. Amarone is a unique wine due to its origin, ancient grape varieties and production method (vinification of grapes that have been semi-dried for 3-4 months on bamboo racks). The Costasera Amarone expresses a particular majesty and complexity. Ideal with red meats, game and mature cheeses. An excellent wine for the end of the meal and for ageing.

Wine EnthusiastCostasera, one of Masi's most popular expressions of Amarone, can be depended on for its consistent quality year after year. This vintage offers concentrated color and pretty notes of toasted nut backed by cherry, blackberry and mesquite wood. The wine's flavors are bright and fresh, the mouthfeel is clean and polished.

Wine AdvocateThe entry-level 2005 Amarone Classico della Valpolicella Costasera is made in a fairly straightforward, fresh style, with perfumed bright red fruit supported by silky tannins. This harmonious red offers excellent depth and lovely balance. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2015.
