1980 Masi "Serego Alighieri Vaio Ameron" Amarone della Valpolicella

SKU #1147646

This venerable Amarone, with its origins in the vineyard "Vaio Armaron" that likely inspired the very word "Amarone," can easily age for 30 years. The Serego Alighieri, descendants of the poet Dante, have been on the job quite some time longer: since 1353. Amarone is made by the "appassimento" method, where the grapes are dried on bamboo racks until February, when the grapes, a blend of Corvina and other varieties, are pressed, fermented and aged in Slavonian oak, and later aged for a time in cherry wood barrels before bottling. A long-lived Amarone with pedigree.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
