90 pts. Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: October, 2013
Although it carries an IGT designation, the 2009 Campofiorin is one of the first commercially successful examples of Ripasso (a second fermentation occurs on the skins of Amarone) produced in Valpolicella. The folks at Masi take enormous credit for perfecting this innovative technique over the years. Campofiorin opens with pretty, dark extraction and bright aromas of ripe blackberry and creme de cassis. There’s a touch of jammy fruit, raisin and prune, but they fit squarely within the Ripasso guidelines. The finish is velvety rich and slightly sweet. I found that this wine drank even better two or three days after the bottle was opened. Drink 2014–2019.

Fresh and spicy, this light-bodied red offers flavors of raspberry pie, dried rose petal and grilled plum. Light tannins show on the finish. Drink now.
