The Boscaini family have been the owners of the Masi vineyards for six generations. Masi produces one of the cult wines from this region of Italy.

Masi vineyards in the Venetian area are located only in the historic and most prestigious viticultural zones. The recent purchase of the "Poderi del Bello Ovile" estate (about 75 hectares) in the Orcia Valley on the ed ges of Montalcino marks the return of the Alighieri family to Tuscany.

Masi technicians have helped in the planting of local grape varieties (Sangiovese, Canaiolo, and Colorino) to make two Supertuscan wines, planned to begin with the 2007 vintage. Masi Tupungato: Argentinian soul, Venetian style.

Masi chose the Tupungato valley, located in Argentina's Mendoza region on the strength of this belief. There, the "Vigneti La Arboleda" winery grows not only Malbec, Argentina's most famous grape, but also Veronese-based varietals such as Corvina and Corvinone.

Wine making Amarone is the product of the ancient wine making method called
"appassimento" (drying of the grapes). At the end of September or
beginning of October the best clusters are laid on bamboo racks in the
lofts of the farmhouse on the vineyard, were large windows allow a
natural ventilation. By the middle of February the grapes weigh 35-40%
less. They are partially affected by botrytis ("noble rot") due to the cooler
climate of the high hills.
