This is the original Supervenetian created by Masi in 1964 and internationally recognised as a wine of “stupendous body and complexity”, the prototype for a new category of wines from the Veneto inspired by the Amarone production method (Burton Anderson). Its own production method was described by Hugh Johnson as “an ingenious technique”.
Full bodied, smooth and velvety, but approachable and versatile in its food pairings. Combines simplicity with style, strength and majesty.
Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Bright ruby red in colour. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and sweet spices on the nose. Firm and well balanced structure on the palate, with smooth tannins and lively acidity. Long finish with flavours of berry fruit and spices."

92/100 JamesSuckling.com (2016 Vintage)
"Exuberant morello cherries, raspberry coulis and subtler notes of dried orange peel come to the surface. The medium-bodied palate has some bite with a solid backbone of firm tannins. Drink now."
