Masi 2008 Costasera Amarone Classico
Veneto, Italy

A bold and complex wine with a big, international reputation, this Amarone will have you singing amore. Up front, its berries, plums and balsamic but deeper, darker leather, chocolate and exotic spice notes creep in toward the back, giving it a sultry appeal. A standout on its own, it would also work as an accompaniment to an herb-rubbed rack of lamb or an assortment of aged, hard cheeses.

Rating: 16.5/20
Price: $60
