Masi’s most up-to-date Italian white is also the estate’s white “Supervenetian,” a wine of great personality. Masianco Pinot Grigio delle Venezie blends the elegant, fruity and rich aromas of this grape, cultivated in Friuli, with the structure, poise and body of the native Verduzzo, picked slightly over-ripe and mature. Pinot Grigio comes from the Castions di Strada vineyard, with sedimentary soil of loose clay and gravel. Together with the moderate climate, good temperature variation, sea breezes, and cold winds (the Bora), these are ideal conditions to cultivate these two indigenous grapes. Each variety is harvested and vinified separately; Pinot Grigio is picked end of August, vinified immediately to enhance fresh aromas, with partial malolactic. Verduzzo is harvested end of September, then further ripened on racks for a few weeks to enhance concentration. After short cryomaceration, the Verduzzo is fermented in stainless steel tanks and transferred to barriques where it completes malolactic.
Wine & Spirits2012 vintage
This straw-yellow wine shows attractive, tropical fruit aromas. Fresh and charming palate flavors gain weight and become full on the mid-palate, where fruitiness blends with traces of honey. A dry finish has a citrus twist.
An ideal aperitif, this wine is perfect with hors d’oeuvres, fish, and white meats. This medium-bodied white has great personality, well-suited to modern cuisine.
