Masi Campofiorin Rosso del Veronese, 2011, Waitrose

A rich Italian red from Waitrose

Italian wines can sometimes be like Italian driving to the outsider - chaotic and hard to understand. This Masi Campofiorin, however, is as pleasing and enjoyable as sitting behind the wheel of a Fiat 500.

Waitrose describe this wine as "first made in 1964 and Veneto's answer to a 'Super Tuscan'; full-bodied with a soft tannin structure, cherry and plum flavours with hints of cinnamon, cocoa, tobacco and vanilla on the long finish. Exceptional value."

It is a blend of three grapes: Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara. The wine is made using the appassimento method of re-fermentation using partially-dried grapes for extra richness.

Pure cherry and red plum fruit with sweet spices, cool mint and some aged complexity. Rich concentration, pure and fresh.


Match with beef ragu.
