Description

Considered “the Valpolicella of tomorrow”, this red wine is surprisingly intense and full-bodied with a good tannic content. Unexpectedly fruity, rich and approachable. The nose combines familiar Corvina aromas with the firm character of Oseleta, the forgotten native variety rediscovered by Masi.

The power and audacity of this wine is expressed in its name, Toar, which refers to the volcanic rocks of its vineyards of origin.

Wine tasting notes

Deep ruby red with violet reflections. Ripe red fruit with hints of vanilla on the nose.Dry, good acidity and soft tannins. Plums and cherries. Long finish, full bodied and elegant.
