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

The nose showed black cherry, herbs, and dark wood tones. On the palate it showed a light to medium body with juicy, ripe red berry and a note of cedar, which stayed through the close. The 2009 Campofiorin represents great value. It's clean and fruity with enough depth to keep you interested throughout the bottle.

Medium to full-bodied, with lots of concentrated fruit. Notes of black cherry, sweet spice, and chocolate dominate.

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.

The great darling of Valpolicella, Campofiorin is a ripasso-style red that undergoes a special double fermentation, although the label does not mention "ripasso." It shows impressive personality and complexity, with spice, ripe fruit, leather and dried ginger aromas. - M.L. Fresh and spicy, this light-bodied red offers flavors of raspberry pie, dried rose petal and grilled plum. Light tannins show on the finish. Drink now. 21,000 cases imported. -AN

Deep bright red color with purple edges. Ripe, fresh fruit and raisined fruit equally prominent on the nose combined with sweet spices, especially vanilla and cinnamon. Ample and complex on the palate, but well rounded and very easy to drink at the same time. The aftertaste has ripe fruit, cherry and bilberry flavors on the finish with hints of vanilla. Good length on the finish.

Sattes Kirschrot; konzentriert fruchtig, reife Dörrfrüchte und Rosinen im Bouquet. Auffallend auch der dezente Kirschduft. Im Gaumen herrlich weich, samtartiger Fluss und schön eingebettete Holzaromen. Ein Wein mit der Süffigkeit und Eleganz eines Valpolicella und der Kraft und Fülle eines Amarone.
