Wilfred Wong of Wine.com – “Such a clever wine, Masi Masianco Pinot Grigio & Verduzzo 2013 unravels one of the ways to bring pinot grigio to the fore and make it perfect for today’s lover of international wines. With the addition of 25% the local Verduzzo (picked just a bit overripe) the winery has done a superb job of fattening up the wine a bit. The result: A very delicious, rewarding white, with plenty of juiciness on the palate and a fine crispness in the aftertaste. Flavors show core fruit and delectable ripeness.”
The history of Masi is the history of a family and its vineyards in the Venetian regions. The name itself derives from “Vaio dei Masi”, the small valley in Valpolicella acquired by the Boscaini family, who are still its owners now, at the end of the XVIII century.
