Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Mazzano is a profound and stunning expression. Amarone hardly gets better than this. This top-shelf wine opens to a midnight black appearance and virtually no light penetration. The bouquet is balanced and complex at the same time and this is no easy feat for a wine made with air-dried grapes. Prune, black plum, blackberry confit, smoke, tar and barbecue smoke appear with carefully measured intensity. There is a point of sourness on the finish and the alcohol clocks in a 16%. Care should be taken when pairing this wine with food. Aged cheese or fatty meat dishes would make a fitting contrast to the mouth-cleaning power of this very rich and powerful Amarone."

Wine Spectator:

"A firm and focused powerhouse, with pureed black cherry, tar, mocha and herbed black olive flavors tightly knit to a dense, tannic structure, while hints of brambly berry, floral and spice gain momentum midpalate and linger on the racy finish. Drink now through 2034. "

Product Description:

"In the 1950s, Masi was a pioneer in establishing the cru or "single vineyard" concept in Italy. The company's Amarone and Recioto wines from historic cru vineyards are excellent expressions of the different terroir sites in the Valpolicella region, which endow the wines with unique style and typical, easily recognizable characteristics." -Winery
