Winemaker's Notes:

Mid-weight, bright ruby red in color. Interesting complexity on the nose, where violets and ripe red fruit are the dominant aromas. Good structure and excellent balance of freshness from the acidity with soft tannins. Plums and raspberries with hints of vanilla on the palate with an attractive length.

Versatile enough to go with many dishes. Perfect with soups, pasta and risottos. Very good both with simple and more substantial dishes based on red meat, or with fresh cheeses.

My Notes:

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."
