One of the most well-known names in the Tuscan wine community, Masseto have been producing outstanding wines for the past five decades. A certified “Super-Tuscan”, it exists on a roster of great names that includes Tignanello and Sassicaia. Made under the iconic Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, until 2019 it was made solely in the Ornellaia vineyard before its own winery was inaugurated.
Situated on a spectacular hillside overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, the estate exists near the small town of Bolgheri. Named after the rock-hard clusters of blue clay known as “massi”, Masseto wines are every single bit an expression of their terroir. Produced from predominantly Merlot, the wine is known for its complex aromas, rounded and opulent fruit flavours, and its tannic structure. This is a sublime wine that will age beautifully for years to come.
