More info

This Masseto benefited from another particularly dry, sunny year which thanks to the rains prior to the harvest, created perfect conditions for the ripening of the Merlot, without excessive heat or dryness and enhanced by the exceptional terroir of the Masseto vineyard. The 2016 vintage combines the principal characteristics of a great Masseto: rich and generous but also very fresh and with a firm structure in a wine of great intensity and complexity.

Colour: Intense and dark, almost black.

Bouquet: On the nose it reveals a rich and ripe expression of concentrated black fruit, with hints of spices and liquorice.

Taste: The palate shows the wine manages to combine great intensity and ripeness of fruit with a remarkable sense of balance and freshness. The tannins are densely knit, the texture velvety, the finish shows lingering fruitiness and a vibrant acidity giving a final touch of freshness.

Longevity 20+ years
