Description

Tuscany is the home of Italy’s most famous IGT category not just because it produces more IGT wine than any other region, but also because it was the famous ‘Super Tuscan’ wines made here that led to the creation of the category.

The 100% Merlot Masseto, on the other hand, has proven to be a wine of greater singularity. Its unique, unmistakable personality always comes through, especially in a set of widely diverse vintages, as this vertical attests. The Masseto vineyard measures roughly 7 hectares. Set on a gently sloping hill, the vineyard is divided into three sections which contain different clay-based soil types.

Smooth, rounded and "easy-drinking" are common descriptions of Merlot wines. Merlot might be seen as the reliable grape variety, or as an insurance policy. Along with its capacity to soften wine, it is early maturing – meaning that it ripens even in slightly cooler climates.

“The stunning 2004 Masseto (100% Merlot) presents layers of sweet jammy dark fruit and mineral notes that burst forth from the glass with notable length, purity and delineation. It is a decidedly elegant and super-refined Masseto that continues to integrate its 100% new oak well, showing extraordinary class and fine, silky-textured tannins that caress the palate on the long finish. The 2004 will be hard to resist in its youth as it is incredibly delicious even now, yet it promises to develop gracefully to at least age 20. It is a phenomenal effort that is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024.” (97 Points, Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate # 171, Jun 2007)
