Oseleta is a native Veronese secondary grape variety with great colour and strength. Rediscovered by Masi in the 1980s, it was first used in the Veronese blend in 1990, thus giving birth to Toar. Its use marks a conceptual revolution in which certain wines traditionally prized above all for their drinkability begin to be made with greater complexity and weight. Oseleta gives structure to the wine, while leaving the typicity coming from Corvina and Rondinella intact. This produces a Valpolicella Classico Superiore with unusual structure and elegance and delineates the style of “tomorrow’s Valpolicella”.
