Tasting note: Masi Campofiorin 2005, Rosso del Veronese IGT

It’s always interesting – and often fun – to re-taste wines you enjoyed often, a while back, but had somewhat set aside and forgotten.

That’s what happened to me when a good friend of mine brought me a bottle of Masi Campofiorin, a unique wine from the Veneto, in Northern Italy. When I first started drinking wine seriously, in the early 90s…

  1. Thanks for the props about THE BUZZ… It’s an honor that you mentioned my blog here…

    Apassimento is such a mythical and delicate process, that gives something special to wine. Campofiorin was also one of my first Italian favorites… I remember selling tons of the stuff at BECCO in the 90s…

    I’m not sure if Campofiorin uses the RIPASSO method, which is worth an article in and of itself…

    Thanks again for the great post.

  2. Thanks for the comment. It’s always a pleasure reading your blog, which has a nice take on winery and vineyard work.

    Interesting comment about the ripasso. Now that you mention it, I seem to remember that Campofiorin may have been a ripasso once. I’ll have to investigate.

  3. I know you should never believe everything you read on Wikipedia, but…

    WY

  4. I think in that case, it’s very believable. Interesting evolution of that method.

  5. hmmm, cellaring a few bottles, that sounds like a good idea. but before i do that, let me have another sip … 🙂
