This podcast focuses on a prestigious winery that has played a major role in bringing Amarone onto the world-class quality and status level that it's now enjoying. I've sat down with Giacomo Boscaini, brand ambassador and export manager at the Masi winery, to talk about his family's contribution to Amarone's fame, to hear the specific characteristics of the typical varieties and the reason for still using Molinara and the myth of the Oseleta grape. You will also hear why the winery still prefers bamboo racks for the drying process, some wine pairing tips for Recioto, the evolution of the Ripasso method and the importance of single vineyard Amarones. Amarone is the only dry wine in the world produced with completely dried grapes, thereby reaching fantastic aromatic and structural depth, yet also a vital freshness under the Masi labels. Christmas is approaching, so if you're still looking for a Christmas present or just a festive wine for the dinner table, you can't go wrong with an Amarone, or even with an Osar, a captivating 100% Oseleta.
