The hills of Veneto as a unique origin for the world-famous wines of Cantina Masi
Masi Agricola produces wines using mainly local grape varieties and also combining traditional and modern winemaking techniques. The uniqueness and personality of each grape variety and the particular regional style is reflected in each Masi product. Without a doubt Masi has revolutionized the wine production in Veneto, is a "touchstone for Veronese wines" as the great wine writer Hugh Johnson puts it.
The areas of today's 'Veneto' Italian for Veneto have always been particularly suitable for wine production. Thanks to a great variety of historically recognised soils and vineyard sites.
Masi has selected the best vineyards in the foothills and hills, paying particular attention to the enhancement of the individual vineyards, the so-called 'cru', which express the excellence of the region and from which wines with a unique personality can be made.
Living history of the Masi Agricola estate
The story of Masi is the story of a family and their vineyards in the Italian region of Veneto, north of the city of Verona. The name itself derives from "Vaio dei Masi", the small valley acquired in the Valpolicella at the end of the 18th century by the Boscaini family, who still own it today.
Today Sandro Boscaini, with the support of his children Alessandra, Raffaele and Mario, runs the company. The Masi family is present in the best terroirs of Veneto with vineyards and historical estates. Since 1973 the Boscaini's in Valpolicella have been working with the Counts Serego Alighieri, direct descendants of the poet Dante. All this is part of an ambitious project to restore the splendour of the agricultural and wine-growing tradition of the nobility.
Masi Agricola - tradition and innovation together under one roof
The historical headquarters of the winery is located in 'Gargagnago di Valpolicella' in the heart of the Valpolicella area. There, visitors can see a grape drying stand, a technique in which Masi has world-renowned expertise. The technique itself and the dry red wine Amarone, produced from the dried grapes, are the main reasons for the reputation and uniqueness of the wines of Azienda Agricola Masi. A visit to the cellar, which is one of the largest in Italy, is impressive and breathes living history step by step. In the specially equipped experimental cellar, where the 'Masi Technical Group' applies and compares the most innovative technologies for wine production and maturation, a whole new generation of Masi wines is created in the creative process.
