Masi Tupungato

One of the most original winemaking projects of recent years, Masi Tupungato is a fusion of Venetian technique and Argentine terroir. Passo Doble is two-thirds Malbec re-fermented with lightly-dried Corvina, enhancing depth and savouriness while maintaining balancing acidity. Corbec is, as the name suggests, made from the same two grape varieties, though this time the proportions are reversed. Vinification here follows that of an Amarone: the grapes are dried on wooden trays for fifteen days, concentrating the flavour, and then aged for eighteen months in oak. Full of spicy fruit, with great body and length, this experiment has been a sure-fire success!
