Full-bodied and lively red with good intensity – cosmopolitan and trendy in style. A modern, innovative wine made in the Masi Tupungato La Arboleda estate in Argentina, using Masi’s expertise in the appassimento method. The elegance of the Corvina grape, with its tastes of super-ripe cherries and velvety texture, is combined with the exuberant virility and tannins of the Malbec grape to produce an outstanding taste and aroma profile.
Colour: impenetrable dark red. Nose: intense bouquet of fruits-of-the-forest and conserves, with hints of mint and cinnamon.
Palate: smooth and full bodied with flavours of plums and cooked cherries. Long, bitter cocoa finish.
Just like Amarone, good with strongly flavoured foods: grilled or roast red meat and mature cheeses. Excellent pairing with spicy vegetable dishes or with the traditional “parmigiana”.
