Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 95-97

Tasted from barrel, the 2013 Masseto is shaping up to be a super star. This edition of the wine is already more muscular and tight compared to the warm vintage expression in 2011 and 2012. This Masseto instead is linear and balanced with pretty fruit tones that are enhanced by enduring sensations of baking spice, dark chocolate and tobacco. The bouquet delivers the classic aromas you should expect of a Merlot of this high standard. The mouthfeel also shows a tight acidic vein that bodes well for the future evolution of this stunning wine. The tannins are youthful and unyielding but they also show firm structure and balance that serves to support the wine’s rich extract and flavors. [Monica Larner, 28/09/2017]

JancisRobinson.com – 17

A rainy spring delayed the growing season. Flowering was irregular. July was warm and dry but storms in August delayed harvest by almost two weeks. Very fresh, fairly complex nose but overall the wine seems a bit skinny at this early stage. The finish is still a little oaky. Extremely youthful and still a little scrawny. The end arrives a little suddenly. [01/12/2016]

Vinous – 97

The 2013 Masseto boasts striking inner perfume and sweetness. Pliant and expressive at the outset, the 2013 starts to shut down quickly with time in bottle, which is probably a good thing for the long term. A host of dark red cherry, plum, mocha and licorice build in the glass, but structurally the wine is quite reticent. Historically, Massetos from cooler, late-ripening vintages have developed gracefully in bottle. I expect that to be the case here as well. [Antonio Galloni, 11/01/2016]

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2033
