(2010 Vintage) Dry, rich, velvety, complex and elegant. Made in the same approachable style as Campofiorin, of which this is a cru version, using the original production method inspired by the technique employed for Amarone.
Robert Parker(2010 Vintage) One step up in sophistication and pedigree compared to the base Campofiorin is the 2010 Brolo Campofiorin Oro. The base Campofiorin is great for sitting by the fireplace with family and friends, but this is a wine of extra caliber for dinner parties and elegant company. The bouquet is tightly woven with threads of dark fruit, spice, tobacco and cola. The wine shows a thicker, more elaborate level of extraction in the mouth. It tastes more like an Amarone than a Ripasso.
Wine Spectator(2010 Vintage) Though elegant overall, the supple tannins lend weight and structure to this fresh red, with accents of graphite and mocha lacing the flavors of ground anise, crushed black cherry, loamy earthy and smoky mineral. Subtle finish. Drink now through 2020. -AN
