Masi Costasera Contemporary Art Vert 2001

$279.99

The “Costasera Contemporary Art” project, held biennially, involves the selection of an internationally famous artist, with origins in a country linked to Masi and its wines, who then has the task of producing a work of art dedicated to Masi’s iconic Costasera Amarone wine.

The result is then reproduced on a selection of bottles of Costasera from a particularly fine vintage. At the end of the project, the artist chooses a young art student, who is sponsored by Masi to come to Italy to study at a centre of artistic excellence.

The artist selected for the 4th edition of the project “Costasera Contemporary Art” is the Chinese He Xi.

Creator of refined paintings on silk and rice paper, he embellished the label of Amarone Costasera 2001 with his art.

Since ever, the artist explores the themes of freedom from constraints, representing on his work a flight of butterflies on the ocean. The title is “Jin Du”, the Ancient Chinese term for “transport by water”.

The inspiration come from Verona, the birthplace of Romeo and Juliet, protagonists of a romantic love story that recalls a Chinese legend whose epilogue is the flight of two butterflies into which the protagonists were transformed, two unfortunate young lovers.

Furthermore, the reason why the artist decided to paint on silk comes from the story of the explorer Marco Polo, who brought traditional porcelain and silks from China.

The He Xi label is to be found on 3,000 bottles of Costasera Amarone, 2001 vintage.

Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant: this is Masi’s gentle giant. A benchmark for the Amarone category, which, together with Barolo and Brunello, makes up the aristocracy of the Italian wine world.

The product of Masi’s unrivalled expertise in the appassimento technique, whereby traditional grapes for the Valpolicella Classica area – Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara – are laid out on bamboo racks to concentrate their aromas during the winter months.
