Masi Corvina Blend Veronese IGT Campofiorin 2009
Rich, smooth and velvety; very approachable and versatile with food. This is Masi's original Supervenetian from 1964 - recognised internationally as the creator of a new category for wines from the Veneto inspired by the technique of making Amarone. Combining simplicity and grace with strength and majesty.www.masi.it
The Boscaini family have been the owners of the Masi vineyards for six generations. Sandro Boscaini is the company president. The other members of the family involved are Sandro's children: Alessandra and Raffaele, and his brothers: Bruno who looks after the production processes, and Mario who is a sleeping partner in the company.
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.
Great red from our anniversary dinner at Quattro in 2012

External Reviews for Masi Corvina Blend Veronese IGT Campofiorin
Dunkles Purpurrot; fruchtig in der Nase, an Dörrfrüchte und Rosinen erinnernd. Ausgewogen und süffig-elegant im Gaumen, von einer saftigen Säure begleitet. Gut strukturiert, vollmundig mit einem mittellangen Nachhall. Ein Passepartout für gelungene Stunden.
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.
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.
70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara.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. Perfect with many different kinds of food such as pasta with rich sauces (based on meat or mushrooms), grilled or roasted red meats, game and mature cheeses.
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.
Although it carries an IGT designation, the 2009 Campofiorin is one of the first commercially successful examples of Ripasso (a second fermentation occurs on the skins of Amarone) produced in Valpolicella. The folks at Masi take enormous credit for perfecting this innovative technique over the years. Campofiorin opens with pretty, dark extraction and bright aromas of ripe blackberry and creme de cassis. There’s a touch of jammy fruit, raisin and prune, but they fit squarely within the Ripasso guidelines. The finish is velvety rich and slightly sweet. I found that this wine drank even better two or three days after the bottle was opened. Drink 2014–2019.
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. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 88 PointsFresh and spicy, this light-bodied red offers flavors of raspberry pie, dried rose petal and grilled plum.
