Masi Campofiorin Rosso del Veronese IGT 2015, Italy

Campofiorin is the original ‘Supervenetian,’ made with Masi’s double fermentation technique. A specialty wine, this red is made from local Veronese grapes Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara vinified and then re-fermented with a small percentage of semi-dried grapes of the same varieties. Vineyards in the valleys of the Veronese hills have similar conditions to the original ‘Campofiorin’ vineyard in Marano di Valpolicella, with very deep alluvial and eocenic limestone soil. Fermented wine from fresh grapes is re-fermented with 25% of whole grapes semi-dried (for about 6 weeks) of the same varieties. After fermentation, malolactic begins immediately. The wine is aged in wood, 2/3 in Slavonian oak botti of 90 hl, 1/3 in Allier and Slavonian barrels of 600 liters, new, and a period in bottle. Bright ruby red with purple overtones. On the nose, intense and attractive aromas of plums, cherries and spices, cinnamon in particular. On the palate, velvety tannins and good supporting acidity come into play. The ripe fruit and spices on the finish make it intense and long lasting.
