Masi 2010 Campofiorin, IGT Rosso Del Veronese
Masi is of course well-known for being an outstanding producer in the Veneto of Amarone and Valpolicella wines. Campofiorin originally was a Valpolicella "Ripasso", but now they have decided to take this rich red to another level entirely. Carefully selected Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes are vinified normally as if to produce a Valpolicella. Then, as in the production of Amarone, grapes that have been dried, intensifying the flavors and sugars are added to this finished wine allowing it to re-ferment over a period of about 6 weeks. This brings another dimension of flavor and complexity to the fresh Veronese red wine. After this second fermentation the wine is aged 2/3 in large Slavonian oak casks and 1/3 in smaller new oak barrels, both Allier and Slavonian. In the end the finished wine is cross between Amarone and Valpolicella that is unique and compelling. It's a rich, zesty red that shows generous, ripe aromas of plums and cherry and spice. Bold and rich flavors of berry fruits bitter chocolate wood sap and smoke with a lively balance and velvety tannins. If you love Amarone, (and who doesn't?) but want a wine with everyday style and value, this is the ticket! Don't miss it!

    Comments about Masi 2010 Campofiorin, IGT Rosso Del Veronese:

    You hear the term "baby Amarone" get thrown around a lot, but this is the best example of it that I have yet to taste. All that dried cherry, raisin and chocolate is layered over the smokey cedar and slight syrupy notes. It's a big wine, but maintains wonderful acidity lending itself to anything from a bowl of pasta to a charred piece of beef. Like a light Amarone at a fraction of the price

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game, Pizza and Pasta
