Gems from Verona

Dorona will host Masi wine dinner in July

Masi-Wine-DinnerDorona, the modern Italian steakhouse owned by Fabrizio and Ingrid Aielli, continues its commitment to a world-class wine program when it welcomes Masi Agricola on Thursday, July 8 at 6:30 p.m.

Located in the heart of the Valpolicella region in Verona, Northern Italy, Masi’s history goes back to the beginning of the 18th century. Under the direction of the Boscaini family, the estate has become synonymous with both Amarone and the apassimento process (the practice of laying the harvested grapes out to dry on bamboo racks through the winter to concentrate the intensity, color and aroma of the wines).
