Corbec Appasimento 2008

Producer: Masi Tupungato
Masi are specialists in the appassimento method with their four Amarone wines and three Reciotos in Italy. This is the method applied here in successive stages after a harvest of selected grapes for the final assemblage. The selected grape bunches were laid on specially constructed wooden trays, made in imitation of the Venetian “arelle”, for 22 days. The time taken for appassimento was short thanks to the naturally dry, warm and well-ventilated local climate. The unique and easy to recognise qualities of Corvina (hints of dried cherries and a velvety structure) have balanced perfectly with the exuberant virility and tannins of the Malbec, making for a unique and fascinating aroma/taste profile. As with Amarone, this wine will go well with strong-tasting foods (grilled red meat, roast meat, or game) and mature cheeses.
