    Winemaker's Notes:

    70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 5% Molinara

    Created in 1964, Campofiorin is the original product of the personal interpretation by Masi's technicians of an ancient vinification system used in Verona and technically known as "refermentation". Masi is proud to have created a completely new category in the ranks of Veronese winemaking, a class of wines that stands between the elegant simplicity of the classic wine types and the complex majesty of the Amarone, a benchmark category for other wines. Campofiorin, of course, with its unique personality, will always remain the primus inter pares of "Supervenetian reds."

    Deep ruby red color with violet tinges on the edges. Intense bouquet with hints of ripe berry fruit, baked plums and cherries. Ample on the palate, full-bodied and velvety with characteristic hints of bitter cherries and cooked fruit. Attractive aftertaste with a hint of walnut.

    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.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of fennel and anise lend a savory aspect to this wine's ripe plum and cherry flavors. A good match for sausage pizza.

    Nice well rounded medium red wine, a hit for the novice and a valued enjoyment for the sophisticated palette
