Intense, deep, dark ruby red color; very viscous with purple edges. Strong and attractive cherry aromas on the nose with a pleasing spiciness. Great power and balance on the palate, with aromas of ripe fruit, cherries in spirit and blackcurrants. Soft and well balanced tannins benefiting from good acidity; long aftertaste with hints of vanilla and cocoa, just like an Amarone.
Although it is not labeled "Ripasso", Campofiorin is indeed among the very first commercial wines made in the Ripasso style (with partially air-dried grapes). The beautiful results show intensity, elegance and although the mid-palate is compact and short, the wine does offer a full array of spicy and dark fruit aromas.
