The colour scale for red wines ranges from purple to ruby, garnet or orange-red (with intermediate shades). In general, purple is the characteristic colour of a young wine; as the wine gradually ages, it loses some of its red to become more brick-coloured. All this is equally joined by the bouquets and flavours the wine develops through ageing in barrels. Wines are best enjoyed and appreciated by paying careful attention to the serving temperature: depending on the ageing period, the serving temperature ranges from 16 °C for a young red wine through to 20 °C for a well-aged wine.
The Prunotto estate is located in Alba, the most important city in the Langhe area, halfway between Barbaresco and Barolo on the right side of the Tanaro river, on gentle plains surrounded by vineyards in the Langhe and Roero territories. Alba’s surrounding landscapes are captivating. The natural beauty of the gently rolling hills alternate with small sloping valleys covered by rows of meticulously cultivated vineyards.
Masi has always been an ambassador for the values of the Venetian Regions. Its story began in 1772, when the Boscaini family, now in its seventh generation, bought prestigious vineyards in the “Vaio dei Masi”, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica zone. World leaders in the production of Amarone Classico, MASI has developed recognised EXPERTISE in the APPASSIMENTO technique through its TECHNICAL GROUP. The technique dates back to the Ancient Romans and involves leaving grapes to dry on bamboo racks for the winter months to concentrate aromas and flavours in the resulting wine. And an aptitude for innovation has resulted in the production of the widest and most expertly made range of Amaroni, Recioti and Double Fermentation wines – which together form MASI’s calling card in the world.
