Masi – Top 100

  1. Tell you, I’m not a fan of young Amarone — anyone’s, really. It feels like its heart has been ripped out, and it has because it’s a Recioto that overfermented and went bad. Give it 15-20 years, and (given a good vintage) it begins to be interesting, and another 10-15, if it’s a very good vintage, and it really comes into its own.

    1. Kyle:

      I can’t say I feel as strongly about young Amarone as you do, but I do prefer older versions. I agree that the real character of these wines don’t emerge for several years (at least 7-10), so let them sit if you can or order an older vintage at the restaurant.
