Campofiorin Rosso del Veronese IGT 2014 play

Region: Italy / Veneto
Grapes: Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara

Campofiorin is the original “Supervenetian,” made with Masi’s double fermentation technique. A specialty wine, this red is made from local Veronese grapes Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara vinified and then re-fermented with a small percentage of semi-dried grapes of the same varieties. Vineyards in the valleys of the Veronese hills have similar conditions to the original “Campofiorin” vineyard in Marano di Valpolicella, with very deep alluvial and eocenic limestone soil. Fermented wine from fresh grapes is re-fermented with 25% of whole grapes semi-dried (for about 6 weeks) of the same varieties. After fermentation, malolactic begins immediately. The wine is aged in wood, 2/3 in Slavonian oak botti of 90 hl, 1/3 in Allier and Slavonian barrels of 600 liters, new, and a period in bottle.

harvest note

2014 was a complex year, characterised by high levels of rainfall in the months of July and August, quite different to the average of the last 80 years. The weather changed for the better in September and October, with sunny days and relative humidity at between 50-80%, and no rain at all. This meant the grapes picked were ripe and healthy, suitable for vinification. Quantities were down however, at 15%-20% less than the average for the last 10 years. Harvesting took place in mid-September and the significant presence of millerandage (uneven ripening) meant that selection was vital.

tasting note

Bright ruby red with purple overtones. On the nose, intense and attractive aromas of plums, cherries and spices, cinnamon in particular. On the palate, velvety tannins and good supporting acidity come into play. The ripe fruit and spices on the finish make it intense and long lasting.

food pairing

A very versatile wine. Perfect with many different kinds of food such as pasta with rich sauces (meat or mushroom based), grilled or roasted red meats, and mature cheeses.
