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.
