One of the most sought after wines in the world, Masseto is a rare and exclusive 'Cru', coming from a small vineyard of seven acres which bears the same name and is known for its exceptional terroirs. Made exclusively from the variety Merlot, Masseto possesses great structure and longevity and production is severely limited due to an extremely rigorous selection process. Masseto 2006 is a classic release that received universal acclaim upon release. Aromas of ripe red and dark berry fruit combine with notes of balsalmic, wild herbs, cocoa and smooth spices. Dense and rich in the mouth with velvety tannins and an immensely long, supple finish. A highly collectable and outstanding release which will continue to develop and improve over the next 20 years and beyond.£84.67 per 100.00ml
Simply put, the 2006 Masseto is a masterpiece from Tenuta dell’Ornellaia. "I can still remember nearly falling out of my chair the first time I tasted the 2006 Masseto (100% Merlot) from barrel. The wine is now in bottle, and it is every bit as monumental as I had hoped. A wine of breathtaking depth, it also reveals superb clarity, freshness and vibrancy in sumptuous, beautifully balanced style" - 99 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
