Masi Campofiorin Veronese IGT 2018
Rosso del Veronese IGT made from Corvina, Rondinella, Molinara.
Full bodied, smooth and velvety, but approachable and versatile in its food pairings. Combines simplicity with style, strength and majesty.
This is the original Supervenetian created by Masi in 1964 and internationally recognised as a wine of “stupendous body and complexity”, the prototype for a new category of wines from the Veneto inspired by the Amarone production method.
“Clean black fruit with some fresh tobacco on the nose, following through to the palate, where it takes on a fresh-orange note, too. Medium-bodied and super clean with well-integrated tannins. Delicious now.” James Suckling 91/100 (Vintage 2018)
“Aromas of wild red berries, dark cherries and plums. There’s no mistaking the second layer in the bouquet revealing scents of steel, iron and a haunting graphite, leather and preserved red berry fruit core.
On the palate – flavours that show off what the nose suggests with wild red berries, preserved cherry, brown spices and leather. A light violet floral note hidden a little by the firm tannins with a velvet texture. Moderate+ acidity. Balanced , lengthy, memorable. Drink now and through 2026. “
