Powerful, complex aromas of dried plums, with 'balsamic' (anise, fennel, mint) traces. Quite dry (not sweet), soft and with bright acidity, with baked cherry, chocolate and cinnamon flavors and structured, noble tannins.
Founded at the end of the 18th century, the Boscaini family have owned the Masi vineyards for six generations. Modern, pleasant, well-balanced and recognizable wines have earned Masi recognition for having "revolutionized the art of wine-making in the Veneto". Hugh Johnson has defined these wines as "a touchstone for Veronese oenology".
