Modello delle Venezie
Modello Masi is a benchmark for wines from the Venetian regions, made from selected grapes from vineyards located in the Stra' del Milione estate in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
Stra' del Milione is the road Marco Polo used in the 13th century on his ventures abroad; it was the recognised route to the Orient from the Venetian regions. Modello Masi comes from an estate that bears the same name, Stra' del Milione, and has vineyards that line this road.
The soils at Stra' del Milione are particularly well suited to viticulture, perfect for producing innovative wines with an unmistakable style. The proximity of the Adriatic Sea and the presence of the Bora breezes blowing from the Gulf of Trieste help to moderate the climate and limit humidity in the vineyards.
The Dolomites also influence the climate, protecting the vineyards from northern winds. Water management exploits the wealth of pure spring water.
Modello Masi expresses the rich heritage of the grapes of the Venetian regions: Pinot Grigio, Pinot Bianco, Verduzzo, Refosco, Raboso and Merlot, with vines trained according to the Sylvoz and Guyot systems. At Masi we have always used our heritage of indigenous grapes and winemaking techniques in the best way possible, to express the authentic soul of the land in our wines.
The Masi Technical Group uses the most modern technology in the vineyards and in the cellars with a sustainable approach in a constant search for the production of the highest quality wines.
