The 2003 Masseto is another product of a difficult year, but in this case it is a vintage characterized by brutal, unrelenting heat. The estate made the decision to use only the central, oldest part of the vineyard, but even that was not enough to fully counter the effects of the sweltering heat. The 2003 is an opulent, port-like Masseto loaded with sweet, dense fruit. It retains good freshness and delineation, but the style is very ripe and heavy. (AG)
Produced in limited numbers, this showcases fine winemaking on all levels despite a hot vintage. The raspberry fruit and chocolate nuances are fragrant and intense; the oak is so well integrated you only feel its presence in the mouth, where the wine is opulent but also extremely silky. But the most exciting elements to this wine are its distinctive Mediterranean accents of menthol, wild sage and seaside shrubbery that beautifully recall its coastal Tuscan roots.
This is ripe and meaty, with cherry and plum preserve notes and a touch of tar. Broad-shouldered and powerful, this reveals dense tannins and roasted, dried accents on the lingering finish. Extremely concentrated. (BS, Web Only-2018)
