Masi Tupungato 'Corbec' Corvina/Amarone
The Boscaini family who own Masi are originally from the Veneto region of Italy and are widely regarded as one of the great specialists in the production of appassimento method wines, that is wines made with some, or all, semi-dried grapes, like Amarone de Valpolicella amongst others. Their Masi Tupungato project in Argentina was created after Masi had searched out the best terroirs and environmental conditions that would be suitable for both traditional Argentinian grape varieties such as Torrontes and Malbec as well as Venetian varieties such as Corvina and Pinot Grigio. As Masi put it 'Argentinian nature meets Italian style'.
TASTING NOTESThe unrivalled and unmistakable qualities of Corvina Veronese with its over-ripe cherry aroma and deep velvety structure, have balanced perfectly with the exuberant virility and tannins of Malbec (30%), thus making for a unique and fascinating aroma/taste profile.
FOOD PAIRINGJust like Amarone, good with strongly flavoured foods: grilled or roast red meat, game and mature cheeses.
