Masi Mazzano Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2011
Mazzano is an austere and majestic wine, the prototype for Amarone. The grapes come from the eponymous vineyard, famous for the quality of its produce since the XII century, and are laid out in traditional drying lofts during the cold winter months.
Another single vineyard that is quite different to the Campolongo, slightly more austere, concentrated and less giving on its youth. However after about 10-15 years it develops into a complex, powerful and rich wine with beautiful smooth velvety texture that is capable of again up to 20 years.
Masi Campolongo di Torbe Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2011
Campolongo di Torbe is Masi’s elegant cru version of Amarone, with smooth almond aromas, great intensity and balance. The grapes come from the eponymous vineyard, which has been noted for its quality since the XII century. Grapes are left to dry naturally in traditional drying lofts during the cold winter months.
Amarone and more so single vineyards are one of the most unique and rare wines in the world known for their aging capacity, they are very full bodied wines with intense flavours, power and concentration. Even at 9 years old it is still relatively young. The palate is full with aromas of toasted almonds, sweet coca, a touch of caramel and baked brioche. Approachable now or cellar for 15-20 years.
Col Vetoraz Prosecco Brut 2017
Scents of ripe stone fruits lead to a dry, smooth and intense palate with subtle notes of white blossoms, citrus zest, and a touch of toasted bread and elegant, fine bubbles fills the mouth with creamy texture. Energetic and clean, Col Vetoraz Prosecco complements a wide variety of foods, making it an ideal to pour with appetizers, salads, even brunch! Located in Cartizze, one of the prime areas of the Valdobbiadene region of the Veneto, Col Vetoraz grows its grapes organically at about 1,300 feet above sea level on very steep hills in vineyard sites where the Prosecco, or Glera, grape has grown since 1838. The grapes ferment in temperature-controlled stainless steel, and wine enjoys a second fermentation in tank in the “Charmat” method.

Carpene Malvolti Rosé Brut
From the region of Veneto, northern Italy, Carpene Malvolti has been producing sparkling wine since 1860, one of the longest histories in the production of sparkling wine. This is made from Pinot Nero and Raboso. The blend of these two varieties along with a slow fermentation in pressurised tanks has produced an intensely perfumed and floral wine. Wonderful refined bubbles with a delicate bouquet yet full rounded flavour, bright pink in colour with crimson highlights, very refreshing, vibrant and fresh.
