Food Pairings for Masi Campofiorin Ripasso
A really nice ripasso, very concentrated and rich. Raisins, cocoa and cherry flavors with fine tannins.
Aromas of oak, dried fruit, spice, hints of earth and mineral notes. Wonderful rich, full-bodied, and velvety mouth feel. Exhibits flavors of dried red fruits and spice, cedar wood and earth tones. Decent complexity, some tartness in finish.
Medium body with silky smooth tannin
First time I taste a ripasso, a great valpolicella a baby amarone! Great wine for the price
Nice affordable amarone
It's a pretty good wine. It's a little thin like a lot of italian wines, But I would buy it again.
External Reviews for Masi Campofiorin Ripasso
This poor man's Amarone, costing less than a Louie's footlong with fries, is an oenophile's rack of lamb - jeweled garment within the glass releases subtle berry aroma. Full-bodied, filling the palate with rich, dark fruits, dried cherries and chewy texture. Fine tannins and a long brown-spice finish. At this price you will soon be rich - Grazie Masi!
Easy yet complex, this ripasso-method red is ultra smooth, with rich, dark cherry and plum fruit riding the velvety palate. This supple, full-flavored red delivers plenty of pleasure. Will pair well with dinner, yet is round enough to sip.
Lots of raisin, berry and leather aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a lively finish. A bit rustic, but delicious. Drink now through 2005.
As touted on the label, this wine is the nectar of angels given to man. If that is an exaggeration, the wine is at least the cost-conscious connoisseur's Amarone, made by adding unpressed dried skins of Amarone (Corvina) grapes to the existing wine. The result is a rich and powerful wine with copious black fruit, robust earthiness and a flavor of raisins characteristic. Generous, multi-layered and persistent, the finish is like velvet.
Offers an incredible bouquet for a $15 wine - a beautiful floral bloom of cherry blossoms and cocoa that leaves your mouth watering. Rich chocolate and cherry flavors finish with baby-soft tannins.
Brolo di Campofiorin is a special selection of Masis famous Campofiorin. The production technique is Masis personal interpretation one that the company has developed over the past 40 years - of an ancient vinification system used in Valpolicella and known locally as refermentation. The wine produced with Corvina, with a small presence of Rondinella, referments today on a certain percentage of slightly dryed Corvina grape. This dryed Corvina, having concentrated sugars, aromas and glycerin, provokes an immediate second alcoholic fermentation which lasts 12-15 days. Then this fermentation goes on enriching the wine in alcohol, in colour and in tannins, as well as giving it new and more complex aromas and flavours. After the malolactic fermentation the wine is aged in small fusti Veronesi of Allier and Slavonian oak for 2/3 years. The wine rests in the bottle for minimum 6 months before release. Brolo di Campofiorin, like Campofiorin, carries the Ripasso trademark, which has been registered by Masi.
This is a specialty of Masi, which uses local grapes, personal style, semi-drying and controlled double fermentation. It is rich, full-bodied, round and delicious - the "nectar of the angels."
