- Item #: i_301024Bottle Size: 750mlWine Advocate: 98WINE ADVOCATE 98 POINTS - "This is a deeply communicative and articulate wine that boasts immense power and persistence. The 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella Monte Lodoletta is a creation of enormous beauty and unflinching intensity. The wine speaks at loud volumes with black cherry, spice, tarry smoke, barbecue marinade and grilled rosemary. Those balsam notes add length and continuity to the bouquet. In the mouth, the wine is complete and penetrating. It wraps thickly over the palate to soothe and entice your taste buds. Yet there is enough crispness to keep it from feeling cloying or too heavy. There is a point of tannic astringency on the finish that will accompany this wine over the next decade of its aging evolution. For that reason, it's best to wait before popping the cork on this memorable vinous experience."

The Boscaini family keeps a unique collection of fine wines in its private cellars, produced in limited quantities and only in the best years, which the family likes to share with lovers of Masi wines.
One of the beautiful cru Amarone that Masi makes, the Mazzano vineyard release is one of those Boscaini cellar wines. The vineyard is located at high elevation and made up of steep, stone fortified terraces; as a result, the grapes grown there tend to be smaller and more concentrated than those from lower vineyards. The palate is blackberry, dark chocolate, tobacco and even Worcestershire sauce before effecting a surprisingly graceful finish. This wine is a true expression of beautiful terrior.
