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.
