Masi 2011 Campofiorin, IGT Rosso Del Veronese

Item Number: 25 30 333 11

Customer Rating Based on a scale of 1 to 5 glasses


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. Wine Adovcate scored this 91 points saying "The 2011 Campofiorin is an IGT Rosso del Veronese executed in a Ripasso style that sees a double fermentation on Amarone skins. Campofiorin is a wine that is dear to my heart because it has long been one of my top drinking choices while sitting by the fireplace on a cold winter's night. It offers Ripasso intensity with brooding dark fruit nuances followed by a dense, chewy build." 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!

An Everyday 'Amarone'
I don't know about you, I love Amarone... but usually it is a bit out of my budget. This wine offers all of the characteristics that I love about Amarone but at a fraction of the price. Dark, dried out berry fruit is the core with aromas of fig, spice and leather coming together nicely. Unlike Amarone, this is ready to drink young with lively acidity and polished tannins. A well made and complex wine.
