James Suckling Review
Rated 94
Lots of complexity comes through from the outset on the nose, borne out in terms of smoky black cherries, dried rose stems, asphalt, tar and licorice. Full, structured body that dives through layers of dark fruit, driven along by active acidity all the way to the long but not cloying finish.

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 92
The Masi 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Costasera is a plump and rich wine that portrays the opulent characteristics of this hot vintage. Dark blackberry is followed by sweet tobacco, baking spice, tar or resin. This beautiful Amarone glides smoothly over the palate imparting dense extraction and dark fruit flavors along the way. The wine has the natural constitution to hold strong for the next decade.

Wine Spectator Review
Rated 91
Light, grippy tannins frame this medium- to full-bodied red, which leans toward the traditional style, with a firm structure and notes of cured tobacco and forest floor. Well-knit and silky on the palate, offering ripe crushed cherry and tarry smoke notes. Drink now through 2027.

Wine Tasting Notes
Deep ruby red color with violet tinges to the edges. Clean, very powerful and complex on the nose with good alcoholic backbone amid the sweet aromas of dried prunes and raisins. Soft and dry on the palate with typical baked cherry flavors mixed with hints of cocoa and cinnamon. Attractively long finishing and full-bodied with soft tannins.
