Sometimes arrogance is to be appreciated, and what would be more bold than to name a wine that starts with your name? But in this case, it works!!.

I first came across Masi when I tried their Amarone at a wine tasting event last year, and I came to love them at that point. I even tried their Campiofiorin when I couldn't find this release from them.

Masianco is what's called a SuperVenetian, and I am sure that you have heard of the SuperTuscans. It's 75% Pinot Grigio and 25% Verduzzo, which I expect is the Italian name for Verdejo -- but I could be wrong. Giving off a wonderful aroma, it has an even better taste, basically the second grape cuts the Pinot Grigio the right way, giving you a unique taste that has both tropical and citrus hints and undertones.

This wine is definitely a winner.
