Massetino 2018


Case Format: 3x75cl

Max score: 95.0

The Messetino is the ‘second vin’ of the famed Masseto single-vineyard, Super Tuscan wine label, sharing the same pedigree as its famous sibling. This was first produced in 2017 and is extremely limited. Just like its elder sibling it juxtaposes power and opulence with discretion and classicism. This is a blend of 94% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc and deep ruby red in colour. Quite earthy on the nose, with pronounced aromas of ripe red berries. Very plummy with a touch of creaminess. On the palate, rich cherry fruit and a hint of chocolate. Tannins are soft and the finish rounded.

Monica Larner

Heres our new little super star from the Tuscan Coast. The 2018 Massetino is Merlot with a dash of Cabernet Franc that makes all the difference in terms of the wines aromatic precision and its overall staying power. Dark fruit and dried blackberry are followed by exotic spice and campfire ash. The aromas are fluid and relaxed, flowing seamlessly in unison and grace. If you love Masseto, you cant miss the Massetino. This wine offers a whole new take on the world-famous Merlot, and if we are to be honest, it paints a path to where future vintages of Masseto are going as an expression of a vineyard and territory rather than just a strict read of one grape.

Shows the polish that is signature to Massetino, with a focus on plum, red cherry and raspberry fruits. Rain in early season followed by a hot dry summer, and this will be ready to drink a few years sooner than the 2019, as it is lighter in structure overall, with tannins that are a little tight. The Cabernet Franc that was planted almost a decade ago is exclusively in the 2nd wine for now,, givign a floral lift through the finish. 50% new oak. Natural yeast fermentation.
