The name Masi is derived from Vaio dei Masi, the small valley, in the Valpolicella vineyard in Veneto, which acquired it at the end of the 18th century by the Boscaini family, which still owns it to this day. Since 1973, the Boscaini family and the Conti Serego Alighieri have combined to produce world-renowned wines. The historic Veneto estate was purchased in 1353 by Pietro Alighieri, son of the renowned Italian poet Dante, and has remained a part of the Alighieri family for 21 generations.
This is the original Supervenetian created by Masi in 1964, the prototype for a new category of wines from the Veneto inspired by the Amarone production method. Made with both fresh and dried grapes, this medium to full-bodied wine has good acidity, balance and velvety tannins. Cherry, prune, licorice, plum, blackberry, oak, tobacco, chocolate, and cinnamon present themselves on the soft palate. Will excel with pasta with rich meat or mushroom-based sauces, grilled or roasted red meats, game and mature cheeses.
