Folio Fine Wine Partners, a Michael Mondavi Family-owned company that represents specially selected wines from the great winegrowing regions of the world, announced today that it has been selected as the exclusive U.S. importer for all Masi Agricola wines effective July 1, 2009.
“We are honored and delighted to be selected as the U.S. importer of record for Masi,” said Michael Mondavi, founder and coach, Folio Fine Wine Partners. “For Folio, adding Masi to our Italian portfolio was a clear choice from both a quality and philosophical standpoint. We pride ourselves on representing leading family wine producers, such as Masi’s Boscaini family, who are committed to producing superior wines.”
Masi dates back to the 18th century when the Boscaini family first planted vineyards in Italy’s Veneto region. Today the Valpolicella-based company is recognized globally as a leading producer of high-end Amarone wine.
“When we began our search for a new U.S. importer, Folio emerged as our top choice for a number of reasons,” said Sandro Boscaini, President of Masi Agricola S.p.A. “First, it was their expertise in Italian wine, as demonstrated by their strong portfolio. Second, we felt a synergy with Michael Mondavi and his family, who have also been making exceptional wines for generations.”
