Review

Campofiorin is a lovely pleasant wine that slips down so readily and casually, but which has a long history behind it. Founded in 1964 by the genius of Guido Boscaini, the Masi installations brought forth the first wine to be obtained using the ripasso technique (a re-fermentation of the wine on the skins and lees of an Amarone). The wine resulting from this ingenious process manages to combine the Valpolicella's immediacy and simplicity with the Amarone's structure and powerfulness. Therein this happy medium lies the virtue of Campofiorin, well-illustrated by the 25 million bottles sold worldwide.

The ideal companion to a typically Italian aperitif, consisting of shavings of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and spicy olives, but also an excellent choice to accompany pasta dishes with a meat sauce or roast meats served as a main course. As its striking ruby-red colour seems to indicate, Campofiorin is a feisty, lively wine. On the nose, it offers cherry, blackberry, plum and sweet spice aromas, which are complemented by other more savoury notes of humus and liquorice. Rounded and with plenty of body, on the palate it reveals fine, polished tannins and considerable freshness. It has a smooth and satisfying flavour, with an enveloping finish that lingers on in a pleasantly fruity touch.

Nice ruby colour, decent length, great value

I have always enjoyed most wines produced by Masi and this one is no exception. For a wine with such richness, complexity and soft tannins, it is also remarkably good value. I like to decant most wines and this (along with correct temperature) certainly helps to reveal the fruit and sweet spices in this one.

We love it a lot

This is a superb Ripassos from Masi and almost as good as their Amarone which is much, much more expensive. Great flavor and great value.

Découverte

lors de nos vacances d'octobre en émilie-romagne, nous avons gouté ce vin dans un restaurant. Coup de cœur unanime de la part des 4 testeurs. Fruité mais avec une bonne complexité, nez de fruits rouges et couleur grenat, il apporte une étonnante douceur au palais malgré la présence de légers tanins. Nous avons tout de suite décidé d' en acheter 12 bouteilles

The Masi story is the story of a family and its vineyards in Tre Venezie. The name itself derives from "Vaio dei Masi", the small valley acquired in Valpolicella at the end of the 18th century by the Boscaini family, who still own it today. Today Masi is present in the best terroirs of the Tre Venezie with vineyards and historical estates. Since 1973, it has collaborated in Valpolicella with the Serego Alighieri Counts, direct descendants of the poet Dante. More recently...
