Masi Brolo di Campofiorin, Italy

£16.99
Quantity:

Though run by the Boscaini family for six generations, it is really in the last fifty years that Masi has established itself as one of the Veneto’s most innovative wine producers. In the late 1950s, they identified certain historic vineyard plots which are vinified as Amarone and bottled separately to this day. In 1964, they launched the now-legendary Campofiorin, which revived the technique of a second fermentation with semi-dried grapes. Masi have also rescued the ancient Oseleta variety from extinction, and continue to use it in two of their celebrated “Supervenetian” wines.

Tasting Notes

An impressive, complex nose of berry fruits and a touch of vanilla. Rich, baked fruit flavours on the palate with hints of cocoa. Impressive structure and length, with a soft and velvety finish.

The term “brolo” (equivalent to the French “clos”) refers to vineyards surrounded by stone walls. The Brolo di Campofiorin vineyards are located at Valgatara di Marano, in the heart of Valpolicella Classico zone.
