Campolongo Di Torbe is Masi's elegant cru version of Amarone, with smooth almond aromas, great intensity and balance.
The grapes come from the eponymous vineyard, which has been noted for its quality since the XII century. Grapes are left to dry naturally in traditional drying lofts during the cold winter months.
