A gift from John & Susan, a deliciously full bodied, mellow fruity wine.
Masi describe it as “nectar angelorum hominibus” or Nectar of the Angels for Men and this 50th anniversary 2013 vintage doesn’t disappoint.

Rosso del Veronese IGT
Full bodied, smooth and velvety, but approachable and versatile in its food pairings. Combines simplicity with style, strength and majesty.
This is the original Supervenetian created by Masi in 1964 and internationally recognised as a wine of “stupendous body and complexity”, the prototype for a new category of wines from the Veneto inspired by the Amarone production method (Burton Anderson). Its own production method was described by Hugh Johnson as “an ingenious technique”.
From Allegrini and named after their recent acquisition in the Veneto near Verona which has been restored as a Boutique venue. A nice find and a lovely wine to match the Blue Cheese and Cheddar Cheeseboard in Ely (the Original). Dark red, lots of fruit. Quaffable. €47. A blend of Corvina and Rondinella with a touch of Sangiovese.
