Masi Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Serego Alighieri Vaio Armaron 750ml 2007

Tasting notes
It is a big Amarone made in the traditional style. Exuberantly massive both on the nose and palate, it has great structure and power. The characteristics of the grapes themselves and the particular microclimatic conditions in the drying areas favour a greater attack of botrytis which gives this Amarone fullness, roundness and an illusion of sweetness in the perfume ("reciotato”).

Rating
 Wine Spectator 92 points (Feb 26 2014)
A grippy, sculpted red, featuring tarry smoke and grilled herb notes that underscore the flavors of date, baker’s chocolate, ground anise and baked plum. Tightly wound and burly right now, so give this time. Best from 2017 through 2027.—A.N.

Wine maker notes
From the Vaio Armaron vineyard, at Gargagnago in the commune of Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella. (The name "vaio” means little valley). Altitude 180-265 metres above sea level, exposure south-west.

The vineyard belongs to the Serègo Alighieri family, direct descendants of the poet Dante. Since 1353, when Dante’s son, Pietro, purchased the property in Gargagnago, the family has farmed the same vineyards over an uninterrupted span of twenty generations, thus making its mark on Verona’s vinicultural history.

The vitivinicultural and commercial revival of this estate is the result of the collaboration between Count Pieralvise di Serègo Alighieri and the Masi Technical Group. Vaio Armaron is unanimously recognised as the original vineyard for the production of Amarone. One accredited theory suggests that through linguistic corruption, today’s word Amarone, commonly used in Veronese enology, owes its derivation to the name of this vineyard.


Food pairing
Ideal with red meats, game, quail, roasts, and other richly-flavoured dishes. Excellent paired with aged and piquant cheeses (like parmesan, pecorino etc.). A noble after-dinner wine.
