Masi

The estate is located in Sant'Ambrogio in the west of the Italian region Veneto, The name derives from the “Vaio die Masi” (small valley), which was acquired by the Boscaini family at the end of the 18th century and enlarged by the purchase of further historical wineries. In the 1980s, Sandro Boscaini and his two brothers set many innovative accents here. Only local, partly revitalized grape varieties are used for the wines. Around 300 hectares of vineyards are cultivated and grapes are also purchased. The annual production is around 4.3 million bottles, two thirds of which are exported to 30 countries. The wide range includes various variants of DOC / DOC wines Bardolino. Soave and Valpolicella, The Valpolicella Amarone "Campolongo di Torbe" is one of the top products. From the long-shelf IGT red wine "Brolo di Campofiorin" (65% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 10% Molinara) according to the type Ripasso only the best vintages are bottled. The IGT red wine "Toar" from the varieties Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta is also worth mentioning. An international Masi Prize is awarded annually for special achievements in viticulture.
