Masi Agricola Sp.A is an Italian Company, leading Amarone producer engaged in the business of manufacturing and selling premium wines with its registered trademarks throughout the world.
Masi is selling his products throughout his importers, distributors, agents and direct customers over the world.
Masi's name comes from the vineyard in the Negrar Valley in the heart of Valpolicella - Vaio dei Masi - which the Boscaini family took over in the 1770s. Today, almost 250 years later, Sandro Boscaini, together with Raffaele son and daughter Alessandra, own and operate Masi.
Sandro Boscaini launched the first Amarone wine in Sweden in February 1994, just from this vineyard "Vaio Armaron Amarone", as this wine is even on Systembolaget, getting top marks year after year. "Amarone", which was a local wine in Valpolicella of varying quality in the 1960s, is today much sought after throughout the world, thanks to Sandro Boscaini, known as Mr Amarone!
