Masi Campolongo di Torbe Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2012
The Boscaini family keeps a unique collection of fine wines in its private cellars, produced in limited quantities and only in the best years, which the family likes to share with lovers of Masi wines. Campolongo di Torbe is Masi’s elegant cru version of Amarone, with smooth almond aromas, great intensity and balance. The grapes come from the eponymous vineyard, which has been noted for its quality since the XII century. Deep, powerful ruby red in colour with a dense texture. The bouquet is strong and very attractive with a slight sweetness that is reminiscent of plum jam and cherries preserved in spirit. Firm but soft and silky tannins on the palate and an attractive acidity to balance the ample body. Long and intense on the finish with hints of baked fruit and a touch of spiciness.
