Brolo Campofiorin Oro Rosso del Veronese IGT play

Region: Italy / Veneto

‘Brolo’ is equivalent to the French ‘clos,’ a walled vineyard. This special selection of Campofiorin expresses the individual style of local Veronese varieties (particularly Corvina) and the original methods of appasimento and Masi’s double fermentation. This dry, rich, velvety, complex and elegant wine is aged in small oak barrels. Brolo di Campofiorin vineyards are located in Valgatara di Marano, in the heart of Valpolicella Classico, where grapes for the original Campofiorin are grown, with very deep alluvial soil on eocenic limestone. Like Campofiorin, this wine is produced using Masi’s double fermentation system. Wine from fresh grapes undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation with selected yeasts. The end of November, the wine is re-fermented, with 30% of semi-dried Corvina grapes. Malolactic follows fermentation. The wine is aged in 600-liter ‘fusti veronesi’: Allier and Slavonian oak barrels, before a period in bottle.

tasting note

This wine shows rich, fragrant, ripe aromas of plums, with cherry compote, cinnamon and clove notes. Soft, full-bodied flavors blend weight and elegance with bright acidity, juicy fruit, and soft, well-rounded tannins. There are baked fruit, sweet spice, coffee and bitter chocolate notes before the very long finish.

food pairing

This uncommonly flexible wine pairs perfectly with many different kinds of food: pasta with rich sauces (meat- or mushroom-based), grilled or roasted red meats,
game and cheese.
