Massetino 2020

Masseto

Case Format: 6x75cl

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.

Jane Anson

Packed full of character, even if clearly on the ripe side - expect baked earth backed up by baked fruits, eucalyptus and butterscotch, layered with pencil lead, graphite, crushed stones, cut herbs. Full of flavour, generosity and slow build power. A confident Massetino with a moreish quality thats hard to resist. 70% new oak.

James Suckling

Very floral and perfumed with red fruits and hints of sandalwood. Medium body, very fresh and fine yet open grained. Crisp and long. Hard not to drink now. But better in three or four years when it comes together. 97% merlot and 3% cabernet franc. Try after 2026.
