This is a fine, smooth and even red but it has a bit of acetic in the background. The nose is richly appointed with...

A step up from Masi's Campofiorin, the Brolo (the equivalent of 'clos' or walled vineyard) is slightly high-toned and...

The 2006 Masi Brolo Di Campofiorin, composed of 80% Corvina and 20% Rondinella, is light to medium bodied, with nice aromas of integrated cherry, almond and prominent wood notes. It has dusty tannins (decant for 30 to 60 min) and nice and long finish. The wine can age for the next 5 or so years with the possibility of leathery note evolution. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts - I would recommend this wine even though it’s a bit $$ for what you are getting. Tasted Feb/11.

Help, I've been robbed! Just because its a Masi doesn't make it good or good value. The wine came across as thin, in stark contrast to expectations of dried grapes as the main input. There were notes of cherry and leather but they were quite subdued. The wine was fairly acidic, not something I look for in a red wine. The tannins held their own against the meat pasta dish. In my view there are plenty of better value wines. Sign me, Grumpy Grape

i have been keeping this wine for a couple of years and was looking forward to the day I would open it. However, this wine did not live up to my optimistic expectations. My biggest disappointment was how light this wine turned out to be (let's say light to medium body range to be fair) and the associated acidity. Also, I found the flavors to be almost completely taken over by the oak. Tasted December 2011.
