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
One of Masi's unique speciality wines, made with the Masi double fermentation technique. A red wine made from local Veronese grapes vinified fresh from the harvest and then refermented with a small percentage of semi-dried grapes of the same varieties. The wine splendidly encompasses the qualities of the Verona area: the excellence of the zone, the highly individual style of the indigenous Veronese grape varieties, and the originality of the techniques of "appassimento" (semi-drying) and Masi double fermentation. It combines simplicity and grace with power and majesty. Rich, full-bodied, round and velvety, with an ageing potential of 10 to 15 years. Campofiorin is a registered Masi trademark. - Winery ** Only 6 in Stock **
Winemaker Notes - Deep ruby red colour. 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.
Aromas of fennel and anise lend a savory aspect to this wine's ripe plum and cherry flavors. A good match for sausage pizza.
Easy yet complex, this ripasso-method red is ultrasmooth, 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.
Brolo di Campofiorin is a special selection of Masi’s famous Campofiorin. The production technique is Masi’s personal interpretation one that the company has developed over the past 40 years - of an
The 2007 Campofiorin is an intense wine packed with dark jammy fruit, mocha, chocolate, spices and leather. This especially dense, entry-level bottling shows excellent length and a round, suave finish with no hard edges. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014. This is one of the finest and most consistent set of wines I have tasted from Masi, one of the historic names in Veneto.
