Winemaker's Notes:

Straw yellow color with greenish reflections. Floral aromas on the nose include wisteria and roses; fruit aromas include green apples, lemons and Williams pears. Fresh, long, full-flavoured and slightly tangy. Acidity and body are well balanced, right through to the characteristically long mineral finish of the Pinot Grigio grape.

Venetian Pinot Grigio has been blended with other indigenous grape varieties of the region to give this rich, fruity and very elegant wine. An ideal aperitif, it is also perfect with hors d'oevres, risottos or pasta with delicately-flavoured sauces, fish, and Mediterranean cuisine in general. Serve at 10°C.

About Masi:

Masi's production strategy aims to emphasize the personality of each single product, while maintaining a recognizable Venetian style. In 1958, Masi was in the forefront of the work to identify the historic "cru" vineyard sites for Amarone. In 1964, Campofiorin was the first in a new category of wines, reinventing the technique of double fermentation and continually updating it. Masi has also updated the style of Amarone, using new appassimento and vinification technologies.

Masi wines are modern, attractive, well-balanced and easily identifiable; characteristics which have earned Masi recognition for having "revolutionized the art of wine-making in the Venetian region." Hugh Johnson defines Masi as "a touchstone for Veronese wines."
