Average Critic Score
97.5
Shows wonderful aromas of flowers and berries, with hints of vanilla and Indian spices. Full-bodied and powerful, with layers of chewy tannins and a long, flawless finish. Compact and dense, yet racy and refined. Not the perfect 2001, but very close. Best after 2013. 2,680 cases made. ?JS
Wine Spectator
The stunning 2004 Masseto (100% Merlot) presents layers of sweet jammy dark fruit and mineral notes that burst forth from the glass with notable length, purity and delineation. It is a decidedly elegant and super-refined Masseto that continues to integrate its 100% new oak well, showing extraordinary class and fine, silky-textured tannins that caress the palate on the long finish. The 2004 will be hard to resist in its youth as it is incredibly delicious even now, yet it promises to develop gracefully to at least age 20. It is a phenomenal effort that is not to be missed. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2024.

Masseto

Masseto

Masseto is without a question, recognized as one of Italy's most iconic wines. A unique vineyard of just 7-hectares, planted upon soil rich in Pliocene clays, blessed with a mild Mediterranean climate and gentle sea breezes: this is the birthplace of Masseto. Set on a gently sloping hill, the vineyard is divided into three sections, which contain different clay-based soil types. The distinct variances between soil, climate, terrain, and tradition make up Masseto’s magnificent terroir. This is nurtured by a passionate and dedicated team which approaches each step of the harvesting and vinification meticulously. In the search of excellence, all of these components come together producing a unique wine, with impressive complexity and sublime elegance.

Grapes

Merlot is considered by many as the most luxurious red grape as it is known for its rich palate, velvety tannins and ample mouthfeel. Its home is originally France’s Bordeaux region and is responsible for Pomerol’s distinguished personality and firm grip (due to its unique clay soil), it also reigns supreme in St. Emilion where it provides its fleshy opulence. This seductress also has a claim to fame in some of Italy’s top bottlings, such as Masseto, Galatrona and Le Macchiole. ...

Bolgheri

Bolgheri

Bolgheri might be considered one of Italy’s newest wine regions. Located on Tuscany’s western coast due south of Livorno and in the region of Maremma, it is most famous due to its incredible list of Italian Super Tuscans, though it is its original wine estate, Tenuta San Guido, producer of Sassicaia, that brought further investment and fame to the region. Following on their success came the Antinoris with Tenuta dell’Ornellaia, Guado al Tasso as well as Tenuta di Biserno, as well as a number of excellent producers such as the Gajas and their estate Ca’ Marcanda, Castello di Bolgheri and Orma. Unlike most other Tuscan regions, its main grape variety is not Sangiovese but rather French varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Syrah due to its unique micro-climate and soil. As a result, Bolgheri can rival some of Bordeaux’s and France’s greatest bottlings. ...
