98 points, “The 2010 Masseto is truly monumental, leaving you breathless and wordless all at once… No matter how much time goes by, that beauty will remain firmly etched in your memory bank.” – Wine Advocate
Masseto is quite simply one of the world’s finest wines; the Super Tuscan answer to Bordeaux’s legendary Le Pin and Pétrus. Normally this 100% Merlot is sold to collectors on allocation, making it notoriously hard to come by, but we have secured a handful of bottles.
2010 was a relatively cool vintage, producing a Masseto of resounding finesse, elegance and potential longevity. It’s a wine of haunting beauty that’s impossible to put down or forget. Wonderful to drink now – revealing cherry liqueur chocolate, fruit cake spices, tobacco, granary toast with blackberry and blackcurrant jam, umami depth, and something reminiscent of stirring stewing plums and exotic spices with a wooden spoon – but if you can hold off, it will continue to improve for another decade and more. Consider pairing with flavours such as pan-fried kale, porcini mushrooms, polenta, cassoulet, black olives, tomato-based stews, game, venison and Chinese red cooking.
