Winemaker's Notes:

A brilliant ruby red with good intensity. A gentle mix of ripe, violet fruits with an afternote of vanilla. A pleasant acidity with soft tannins on the palate accompanies a touch of fragrant cherries and raspberries. A dry, soft finish and good length on the palate.

Refosco, Raboso and a small percentage of other important local grape varieties, are the basis for this unmistakably typical wine from the Venetian territories, which is fruity, well-structured and quaffable. Ideal with a variety of dishes, from soups to grilled meats; also perfect with pasta dishes.

About Masi:

Masi's production strategy aims to emphasize the personality of each single product, while maintaining a recognizable Venetian style. In 1958, Masi was in the forefront of the work to identify the historic "cru" vineyard sites for Amarone. In 1964, Campofiorin was the first in a new category of wines, reinventing the technique of double fermentation and continually updating it. Masi has also updated the style of Amarone, using new appassimento and vinification technologies.

Masi wines are modern, attractive, well-balanced and easily identifiable; characteristics which have earned Masi recognition for having "revolutionized the art of wine-making in the Venetian region." Hugh Johnson defines Masi as "a touchstone for Veronese wines."
