Masi Campofiorin 2012

Verona, Veneto, ItalySince 1964, when they developed the apassimento technique, Masi has been producing this wine. Lighter, recently fermented Valpolicella wine is "repassed" over the skins and lees of the richer, partially-dried Amarone grapes, kicking off a secondary fermentation of the Valpo and adding additional color, texture and flavour to the wine. This effectively creates a wine that merges both the simplicity and ease of Valpo and complexities of Amarone. Black cherry, black plum, branch and bitter coffee lead this gamey, rustic, medium bodied red. Earthy, gritty tannins line a smoothed palate to a drying finish. Needs red meat in jus to match.Tasted: 13 March 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.99 BCLS ON 20.00 LCBO QC 21.75 SAQ SK 23.00 MB 20.00 NS 19.50 NB 23.00 NF 22.50 YK 23.50 Producer: Masi AgricolaDistributors: Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants
