From: $38.90

50_Anniversario_Campofiorin“Aromas of wild red berries, dark cherries and plums. There’s no mistaking the second layer in the bouquet revealing scents of steel, iron and a haunting graphite, leather and preserved red berry fruit core.

On the palate – flavours that show off what the nose suggests with wild red berries, preserved cherry, brown spices and leather. A light violet floral note hidden a little by the firm tannins with a velvet texture. Moderate+ acidity. Balanced , lengthy, memorable. Drink now and through 2026. “

“Full-bodied, smooth and velvety, but approachable and versatile in its food pairings. Combines simplicity with style, strength and majesty. This is the original Supervenetian created by Masi in 1964 and internationally recognised as a wine of “stupendous body and complexity”, the prototype for a new category of wines from the Veneto inspired by the Amarone production method (Burton Anderson). Its own production method was described by Hugh Johnson as “an ingenious technique”.

Grape varieties: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara

Appaxximento: Masi’s expertise in grape drying technique.

Look: intense ruby red. Nose: ripe cherries and sweet spices

Palate: rich, intense cherries and berry fruit; good length and soft tannins.

“Masi double fermentation method. Fermented wine from the fresh grapes is re-fermented with 25% of whole semi-dried (dried for about six weeks) grapes of the same varieties. This fermentation lasts for about 15 days at 18-20°C. The malolactic takes place immediately afterwards. The process enriches the wine in alcohol, in colour, in extracts and in soft and elegant tannins, bringing also new flavours and perfumes at the same time.

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.” Robert Parker: 91/100
