Producer Though run by the Boscaini family for six generations, it is really in the last fifty years that Masi has established itself as one of the Veneto’s most innovative wine producers. In the late 1950s, they identified certain historic vineyard plots which are vinified as Amarone and bottled separately to this day. In 1964, they launched the now-legendary

Campofiorin, which revived the technique of a second fermentation with semi-dried grapes. Masi have also rescued the ancient Oseleta variety from extinction, and continue to use it in two of their celebrated “Supervenetian” wines.


Vineyard The southwest-facing Campolonge de Torbe vineyard has wide terraces supported by natural embankments and dry stone walls. The soil is red eocenic limestone, which is deep, well-drained, and rich in stones and favourable chemical and mineral components.


Winery The grape bunches were laid on bamboo racks to dry for four to five months, resulting in 35-40% weight loss and a degree of botrytis for the Corvina. After a gentle crushing, the dried grapes were partially destemmed and fermented in Slavonian barrels for forty-five days. The wine was then aged for three years, sixty percent in large Slavonian oak barrels and forty percent in smaller Slavonian and Allier oak casks, with a mixture of new and used wood.


Taste An intense, persistent bouquet offers great complexity, with aromas of baked fruit and cinnamon. A rich, well-balanced palate follows, with flavours of spirit-soaked cherries, fruits of the forest and a cinnamon and vanilla aftertaste.
