Masi, Campofiorin, 2013

A gift from John & Susan, a deliciously full bodied, mellow fruity wine.

Masi describe it as “nectar angelorum hominibus” or Nectar of the Angels for Men and this 50th anniversary 2013 vintage doesn’t disappoint.

from their website

Rosso del Veronese IGT

Full bodied, smooth and velvety, but approachable and versatile in its food pairings. Combines simplicity with style, strength and majesty.

This is the original Supervenetian created by Masi in 1964 and internationally recognised as a wine of “stupendous body and complexity”, the prototype for a new category of wines from the Veneto inspired by the Amarone production method (Burton Anderson). Its own production method was described by Hugh Johnson as “an ingenious technique”.
