Tasting Notes

A big and powerful Tuscan Merlot, with loads of fruit and good concentration. Dark ruby color, with intense aromas of blackberries, spices and dried herbs. Full-bodied, with big velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Greatest Masseto ever made. Tight, needs time. Best after 2004. 2,500 cases made.

James Suckling, Wine Spectator, October 2000

The 1997 is still in great shape. Wow. This is a dazzling Masseto endowed with gorgeous fruit and a sexy, opulent personality. The 1997 isn't the most complex or complete Masseto, but it sure is hugely pleasurable.
