The 2008 Masseto is a powerhouse, and unquestionably one of the greatest expression of pure Merlot out there. Incredibly deep, rich notes of black fruits, chocolate, earth, and licorice all emerge from this majestic yet classic, regal, masculine wine. It’s full-bodied and beautifully balanced on the palate and has fabulous purity of fruit, polished tannins, and a huge finish. It’s still a baby but wow, what a wine.

The 2008 Masseto comes across as relatively reserved and along the lines of vintages like 1988 that age beautifully but aren't the blockbuster type wines usually associated with Maremma. Freshly cut flowers, crushed rocks, spices and black cherries are some of the aromas and flavors that emerge from the 2008. This is an exceptionally beautiful Masseto that impresses for its elegance. The wine fleshes out nicely in the glass, while retaining its refined personality. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2028.
