Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG Classico “Campolongo di Torbe” by Masi Cantina Privata Boscaini
The Boscaini family takes pride in their exclusive collection of fine wines, carefully curated and stored in their private cellars. These wines, produced in small batches only in the finest vintages, are a testament to the family’s passion for Masi wines. They are more than happy to share their treasures with fellow wine aficionados.
One such gem in their collection is the Campolongo di Torbe, a sophisticated expression of Amarone. This wine boasts a smooth and refined bouquet of almond aromas and a remarkable balance between intensity and elegance. The grapes for this wine come from the renowned Campolongo di Torbe vineyard, a site that has been producing exceptional grapes since the 12th century.
The pinnacle of Amarone cru, the wine represents the quintessential expression of Valpolicella Classica’s finest terroir sites. The historic vineyard of Campolongo di Torbe, with its deep, porous, and well-drained volcanic soil, is the source of this wine’s exceptional character. The soil imbues the wine with a unique texture, soft tannins, and a delicate interplay of almond and mineral notes that distinguish it from others. A masterful blend of elegance and intensity, this wine truly embodies the art of winemaking at its best.
To create this masterpiece, the grapes are left to dry naturally in traditional drying lofts during the colder winter months, resulting in a wine that truly embodies the rich history and expertise of the Boscaini family and the Masi winemaking tradition.
In the 1950s, Masi was ahead of its time, paving the way for the now-famous “single vineyard” concept in Italy. Their Amarone and Recioto wines, sourced from renowned cru vineyards, are a testament to the company’s unwavering commitment to showcasing the unique characteristics of the Valpolicella region’s terroir. These wines are not only exceptional expressions of the land, but also possess distinct styles and easily recognizable traits, making them a true representation of the region’s rich winemaking heritage.
