The archetype is the one to beg the question, why appassimento? "We like what it does to the grapes," is the simple truth lent in response, in how it delivers a cross between a cherry and a black olive. Bred from consistency, Campofiorin the Super Venetian fills a category gap as a refinement red. Actually quite rich and full of life, gauged with concentration though not out of a generous vintage. Some decisions made injected more of the best grapes normally destined for Amarone to be included. There is a vinyl note to speak of '14, to little surprise inclusive of the Oro acidity. As always, knowledge of this wine's potential for longevity need be part of its assessment. Once tasted alongside '88, '97, '01 and '13 offered up the premise and the discernment. Not to mention how few other wines are the beneficiary attested by the work of human hands. Drink 2020-2028. Tasted in 2017 and September 2018

This is made in the appassimento style with a blend of corvina, rondinella and oseleta grapes that have been dried before pressing. The result is dark cherry in appearance with an expressive nose of dried cherries, herbs, and smoke. It’s medium-to-full bodied on the palate with a smooth mouthfeel, approachable tannins and a lip-smacking tartness. The flavours of sour cherry mixed with smoke linger pleasantly in the finish. This will keep in the cellar for a few more years and will be enjoyed alongside a dish of mushroom risotto. (Dave Isaacs)
Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

a full rich modern Ripasso with a touch of tannic structure. Some smoke and oak late.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Classic "super Venetian." This is one of the more interesting non-traditional cuvees from Masi.
It's a blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Oseleta. It is also the premium version of the ubiquitous red labeled Campofiorin.
Deep and dark ruby, it has pleasant and inviting aromatics. Fig, prune, blackberry, vherry, smoke, and aniseed.
Great acodity and length - utterly drinkable and tasty. Not too complex, but with loads of charm. Blackberry, dark cherry, ruminating smoke, leather, and more licoricey spice.
When you drink this wine, you're drinking an endangered species; albeot one making a comeback. The rare Oseleta varietal is incorporated into this wine. It's a grape grown pretty much only around Verona and Masi are the biggest advocate of its use. It provides more body, darker fruit, and more tannic structure than little Corvina and pretty Rondinella. Its name derives from a local dialect. It means little bird, because at a distance its clusters look like little plump birds sitting on the vine.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
