Masi Campofiorin Rosso del Veronese IGT 2008, $19: It’s time to get out of your Cabernet rut. This Italian classic takes Valpolicella up a notch by twice fermenting the grapes — the second time with partially dried grapes — to dial up complexity, flavors, color and alcohol. In this super 2008 vintage, tannins are pure silk, flavors fruit-forward and full and intense. Masi is a key producer of Veronese premium wines that combine tradition with research and technology. Masi started making Campofiorin in 1964. It’s at Holiday Market, Royal Oak; Plum Market, West BloomfieldTownship; Cantoro’s Italian Market, Livonia; Hiller’s, Commerce Township. Tell your local wine shop it is distributed by National Wine & Spirits.
