Masi Campofiorin 2015
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Veronese|
his was a great vintage in Valpolicella, prizing dark and exuberant fruit flavors. The 2015 Campofiorin is made with the double-fermentation method, or ripasso, that is indigenous to this area, and the wine offers both fresh fruit aromas of blackberry and cherry as well as dried aromas of raisin and prune at the back. The blend is 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. This is a more accessible wine that would make a great pairing partner to a juicy burger topped with avocado, cheddar cheese and bacon. Production is huge at 1,700,000 bottles, but the wine delivers on a value promise.
A balanced, light- to medium-bodied red, with a crisp tannic frame, this offers kirsch and cherry fruit, lavender and anise flavors, underscored by a streak of loamy earth. Drink now through 2021. 125,000 cases made.
