Campofiorin Rosso del Veronese IGT 2015 play

Region: Italy / Veneto
Grapes: 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara

Masi’s original “Supervenetian” made with the double fermentation method: a red wine made from local Veronese grapes vinified fresh from the harvest and then re-fermented with a small percentage of semi-dried grapes of the same varieties. The wine splendidly encompasses the qualities of the Verona area: the excellence of the zone, the highly individual style of the indigenous Veronese grape varieties, and the originality of the techniques of "appassimento" (semi-drying) and Masi double fermentation. Combining simplicity and grace with power and majesty. Rich, full-bodied, round and velvety, with an ageing potential of 10 to 15 years.

harvest note

Hot summer, mostly, with temperatures above the seasonal average and an almost total absence of rain. Strain put on the vines by consequent lack of water increased polyphenols and sugars: vines are noted for their capacity to survive in difficult climatic conditions. The final phase of maturation was therefore excellent which led to the picking of healthy and mature grapes, in an ideal state for vinification, with notable complexity of aromas. Quantities were 10% above the average over the previous 10 years. The harvest began 10 days early: on 7th September for the red grape varieties. As expected, the vintage was exceptionally good.

tasting note

Bright ruby red in colour. Intense and elegant aromas of ripe cherries, raspberries and sweet spices on the nose. Firm and well balanced structure on the palate, with smooth tannins and lively acidity. Long finish with flavours of berry fruit and spices.

food pairing

Pairs well with pasta with rich sauces, grilled or roasted red meats, game and mature cheeses.
