I think the 2007 vintage is one of the best expressions of Mazzano ever made. This is a finely elaborate and intriguing vinous creation that shines bright like a piece of classic marble sculpture. There is a subtle gloss and patina to the wine that gives it extra smoothness and silkiness to the touch. Likewise, its aromas of white mineral, spice, blackcurrant and licorice are finely etched and defined. Timeless Mazzano will keep in your cellar for ten years or more.

(94 points) This Amarone offers more savory notes than sweet fruit, with tightly knit flavors of black olive, dried herb and seared mushroom, accented by hints of ground anise and pepper. Delivers depth and length, showing a hint of date on the lasting, minerally finish. Drink now through 2029. 1,158 cases made.

(94 points) The 2007 Mazzano is just starting to shed its youthful shell to express a kaleidoscope of coffee, pepper, black cherry, blackberry preserve and liquorice. Rich, layered and intense, this polished package carries its 16% alcohol well and avoids any distracting sweetness. Thick, chewy tannins fill the mouth and promise plenty of life ahead.

(93 points) Aromas of sultana, dried fruits and leather follow through to a full body with firm, chewy tannins and a cedar, mahogany and light raisin finish. Almost bitter and dry. Drink now.

(92 points) The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Mazzano is quite a bit darker than the Campolongo di Torbe tasted alongside it. Black cherries, plums, graphite, menthol, smoke, licorice and graphite are all very much alive in the glass. Not a wine for the timid, the 2007 Mazzano is positively explosive in the glass, with huge structure and tons of pure intensity. Ideally, it needs another few years in bottle to fully come together.

(92 points) Blue flower, tilled soil, underbrush, tobacco and dried-cherry aromas waft from the glass of this single-vineyard bottling. The warm palate delivers raisin, prune, graphite, mocha, vanilla and a hint of orange peel alongside bracing tannins. The long finish closes on a mineral note.

Winery

Masi

Masi, one of the biggest and most important wineries in Valpolicella, is a family-owned and run company dating back seven generations. It derives its name from the Vaio dei Masi, the small valley purchased at the end of the 18th century by the Boscaini family.

Masi owns vineyards throughout the Venetian territories. The first purchases, which they began acquiring at the end of the 18th century, were in Valpolicella Classico and in other classic Veronese zones. They also went eastward to Friuli and northwest to Trentino. The latest purchases have been in the Tupungato Valley of Argentina.

The Masi cellars are amongst the biggest in Italy and include the experimental cellar where the Masi Technical Group apply and evaluate the most up-to-date technologies for vinification and refinement.

Since 1973, Masi has collaborated with the Conti Serego Alighieri family on their estates in Valpolicella, and more recently, with the Conti Bossi Fedrigotti family in Trentino, as part of an ambitious project aiming to rediscover the lustre of the farming and winemaking traditions of the nobility from the Venetian area.

Today, Masi is a leader in the production of Amarone and has acknowledged expertise in the Appassimento technique, a traditional method used in the Venetian regions to concentrate aromas and tastes in wine. The grapes are laid out on bamboo racks in drying lofts for the winter period before vinification. This technique is employed in an innovative fashion by the Masi Technical Group to make modern wines from semi-dried grapes.
