A dark burgundy coloured wine. Sweet at first taste with an noticeable tart aftertaste. I found this wine quite medicinal in its flavour with a syrup-like finish on the palette.

Masi has been making wine since 1964 and while a young vineyard they use old world techniques to create a brilliant wine. This is one of the finest and most consistent set of wines I have tasted from Masi, one of the historic names in Veneto. It is bold without being overbearing, a deep ruby red color with sweet spiced cherry and berry nose, this goes well with steaks, pork or cabrito and any number of veggie dishes or pasta. for more info on Masi wines check them out at www.MASI.it. In the USA I have seen prices for Masi wines from $50-250. The Amarone's are at the high end, and it is usually worth every penny.

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: 2011ndash;2014.

The 2004 Campofiorin made from a blend of indigenous varieties. This bottling sees a second fermentation on the lees of the estatersquo;s Amarone, a method known as ripasso, which is designed to give the wine more complexity and body. A medium-bodied red, the wine reveals pretty notes of red fruit intermingled with smoke, tobacco, herbs and leather. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2011.


External Review

This light- to medium-bodied red boasts bright scents of cherries with a dusting of cinnamon, backed by silky tannins and delicate minerality. Itrsquo;s rather Burgundian in style and feel, without any overripe notes.


External Review

Masirsquo;s medium-bodied 2004 Campofiorin offers red fruits, herbs, dried flowers, leather and spices. It comes across as somewhat austere and lacking softness. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2009.


External Review

Like the rsquo;98 Barolo, this is still showing some reductive notes of rubber on the nose, but boasts plenty of lush, ripe, black cherries and dried spices on the palate. It goes down deceptively easy, yet should improve for another few years at least.


External Review

Offers an incredible bouquet for a $15 wine mdash; a beautiful floral bloom of cherry blossoms and cocoa that leaves your mouth watering. Rich chocolate and cherry flavors finish with baby-soft tannins.


External Review

Aromas of fennel and anise lend a savory aspect to this winersquo;s ripe plum and cherry flavors. A good match for sausage pizza.

Winemaker's Notes:

The happy result of an intuitive experiment, this was created by Masi in 1964 from Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes. It is a classic 'Supervenetian Red' that demonstrates the excellence of its terroir, the outstanding character of local grapes and the uniqueness of the production method.
