Brolo Campofiorin Oro Rosso del Veronese IGT 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Sattes Kirschrot. In der Nase konzentriert und süss-fruchtig. Dörrfrüchte, Zwetschgenkompott, Nelken, schwarze Schokolade, Weichselkirschen. Im Gaumen kompakt und zugleich schmeichelnd. Anschmiegsame, reife Gerbstoffe und eine gut integrierte Säure geben dem Wein Struktur und Charakter. Wiederum viel reife, dunkle Frucht und Würze, dezente Holzaromen. Ein Wein mit der Süffigkeit und Eleganz eines Valpolicella und der Kraft und Fülle eines Amarone.

A little smoky and earthy on the nose which is curiously a bit nutty as well. Made in a polished, fairly rich style, this features a nice blend of fresh plum and dried cherry fruit that's a bit medicinal and short but smooth as silk with a hint of vanilla over the wild cherry fruit up front, and sneaky length, with flavors of grapes skin and minerals on the crisp little finish. 87pts

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. It's a rich, zesty red that shows generous, ripe aromas of plums and cherry and spice. Bold and rich flavors of berry fruits bitter chocolate wood sap and smoke with a lively balance and velvety tannins. 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!

Dichtes Rubin mit purpuren Reflexen. In der Nase fruchtig und würzig. Es zeigen sich Aromen von reifen, schwarzen Beeren, dunkler Konfitüre, Dörrfrüchten, Rosinen, aber auch warmwürzige Komponenten. Im Gaumen von ausgewogener Textur. Saftig-elegant, von einer animierenden Säure begleitet. Die Gerbstoffe sind präsent aber feinmaschig. Ein vollmundiger Körper mit einer vielschichtigen Gaumenaromatik, angenehm strukturiert. Der Abgang zeigt ist von guter Länge und aromatischer Nachhaltigkeit.

Deep ruby red color. Cherries and intriguing aromas of mild spices on the nose. Bright and well rounded at the same time on the palate; baked cherry and plum flavours with hints of cinnamon and vanilla. Excellent balance between the supporting acidity and soft tannins. Full bodied finish with delightful hints of cocoa.
