This is impressive, powerful and very rich on the nose. On the palate, though, the wine is not as hedonistic, appealing and full of fruitiness as I had expected. You can somehow feel the aging of the wine: although the wine has probably never been strong in tannins, they are surprisingly soft now, and the gradual fading of the fruit has already begun.
Very heavy filled with typical amarone fruit. Excellent. Best Masi Costasera ever. Funny minerality/petroleum. The wine looks purple colored. It smells like raisin, cherry, mineral, vanilla, petrol, black pepper, tobacco, alcohol/hot and sherry. It tastes like raisin, cherry, vanilla and petrol. The body is full. The wine has fleshy texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has high acidity.
