Wine Description

(2012 Vintage) Masseto is a very special wine, one that simply goes beyond the excellence of the wine. It represents a unique world, a choice that is exquisitely sensitive to the values incarnated by the earth and man’s labors thereon.

      Tasted by La Turque on 9/12/2010 & rated 95 points: This wine has come along very nicely. A glorious nose of black fruits and cedar. On the palate, the wine is complete and balanced, with fine tannins, soft acidity, lovely fruit and a very long finish. This wine will drink for another 15 years. (2197 views)

    (1997 Vintage) Deep blackish-ruby. Focused, penetrating aromas of caramel, chocolate, plum and vanilla. Round and caressing on the palate, sweet and silky; flavors of plum and raspberry. Offers lovely texture and volume on the back half. Very elegant and very long, finishing with classy tannins.
