    This important wine pours from the bottle with very rich and attractive concentration and a sultry dark garnet color. The Masi 2012 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Campolongo di Torbe certainly knows how to make a grand statement. Density and elegance, power and balance all come into play no matter how contradictory those descriptors might appear. This wine pulls it off, and it also manages to hide some of the overt ripeness and heaviness that commonly appeared in other wines from this very hot and dry vintage. You sense that the fruit is ripe, for sure, but the wine does not reveal too much sweetness. In fact, the finish is quite dry and even that 16% alcohol is well managed. The blend is 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Molinara. The wine ages in traditional Veronesi casks (measuring 600-liters) for three years. The personality of Campolongo di Torbe is dry, austere and strong. It's always a toss-up every year that I taste these wines, but in 2012, I prefer this wine over the Mazzano. Production is 15,400 bottles. 96/100 (12.2021)


    The 2012 Amarone Classico Campolongo di Torbe is dark, rich and brooding with a smoky mix of grilled herbs, tobacco and plum sauce. It’s velvety and rich with drenching tart cherry, raspberry and dark chocolate tones. This is incredibly rich and sometimes heavy in feel, with a core of brisk acids and minerals to balance. It tapers off balsamic and incredibly long with a bitter twang of savory autumnal spices and lightly structured. The Campolongo di Torbe is a darker, rounder and richer style of Amarone. 92/100 (01.2022)
