Visual

Deep ruby.

Palate

The mouthfeel is dense, rich, intense, with glossy, silk-smooth tannins. A very long, leisurely finish reveals a good vein of acidity and concludes clean and fresh.

Nose

An overwhelming elegance and complex wealth of aromatics, boasting impressions of perfectly ripe red and dark berry fruit, along with balsamic notes of wild herbs, smooth spices, and cocoa.

Winemaking

Multiple rigorous selection. After soft-pressing, fermentation took place in part in steel tanks, and in part in upright oaken casks. The criterion used to determine the tank type was vineyard provenance: every parcel of the Masseto vineyard was vinified separately. After fermentation at 25-28°C, the wines macerated on the skins for 10-15 days at 28°C, bringing the total time in vat to 20-25 days. The malolactic fermentation took place in oak barriques (all new). Total aging was 24 months, in the Masseto temperature-controlled barrel room. After the first 12 months of aging, the wine was assembled, and then returned to the barriques for another 12 months. Following bottling, the wine was then bottle-aged for a further 12 months prior to release.

"A perfect wine from a classic vintage, the 2007 Masseto (100% Merlot from a 17-acre vineyard of the same name) opens with an unabashedly opulent bouquet of delicious blackberry, cherry, chocolate, vanilla, exotic spice and cinnamon. Masseto excels both in terms of quality of fruit and winemaking and delivers plush, velvety tannins and an extra long, supple finish. It will make a special and valuable collection to your cellar. Cellar Selection." 100 Points Wine Enthusiast

"A very powerful and rich Merlot-based red that delivers so much currant bush, tobacco and toasty oak character. Full and layered. Goes on for minutes on the palate. Best after 2014." 97 Points Wine Spectator

"The estate's 2007 Masseto is fabulous. Loads of black cherry, blackberry and cassis are intermingled with minerals, violets and French oak. This is an especially sensual Masseto that impresses for its clarity, intensity and length. The wine's pedigree is impossible to miss, in fact in one of my blind tastings it was immediately identifiable; the class and sheer personality of Masseto came through in spades. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027." 96 Points The Wine Advocate
