Massetino 2019


Case Format: 3x75cl

Max score: 96.0

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.

Massetino 2019 is the third release of this wine. Rare and in demand, it is mostly Merlot, as with first wine Masseto, but with a less oaky character when young. It has gorgeous fruit concentration, full of dark fruits and restrained chocolate, with straw and a balsamic touch, a grainy mid-palate, then a toasty, angular, dry and austere finish.

Tasted before bottling, the 2019 Massetino is shaping up beautifully. This is the third vintage made of the Merlot-based wine enhanced with a small part of Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc is what distinguishes this euphemistically diminutive expression of Masseto, and it is its distinctive vinous signature. The 2019 vintage is soft and pliant but also incredibly rich and layered. It offers generous black fruit with ripe cherry and blackberry. Spice, tobacco and campfire ash fill in the rear and build the aromatic profile of this wine that is already stacked tall and proud. We still need to see how the 2019 plays out in the bottle, and I am especially interested to gauge how the thick and rich fruit concentration works against the less pronounced acidity of the vintage.
