Elegant richness - Italian artisanship in a bottle

Masseto has propelled itself as one of Italy's most sought-after estates, with its influential and distinctive innovative style. Exceptionally in 2015, climatic conditions extended an artistic hand to Masseto: an early harvest under temperate Tuscan sun yielded beautifully ripened grapes that would define this vintage.

The 2015 Masseto portrays an alluring depth of complexity seldom found in Merlot varietals. Delicate notes of black cherry, ripe plum and eastern spices cavort in the mouth, unfurling their allure on well-structured tannins.


A vintage sculpted by refined nature

Favorable weather underscored the 2015 season with warm days and cool nights bringing optimum maturity to the grapes. An intensity, reflected in the glass, dictated by climate and collectedness formed the characteristic equilibrium of this profoundly suave vintage.

This typified consistency carried through a predictable fermentation phase ensuring enriched concentration and defined phenolic structure associated with the substantial quality of Masseto offerings. The effect is a sublime sensory experience.

In each sip, you savour not only the mastery of Masseto's winemaking craft, but also the unique whisperings of its native terroir reverberating down years. A truly tantalizing prospect for savvy wine investors or anyone seeking to delve deep into Italian wine nobility.

This dynamic Merlot offers intrigue and sophistication, rightfully positioning the 2015 Masseto as a worthy contender in your Italian fine wine portfolio. It's a testament to Masseto’s artful blending and a beautifully sculpted vintage that flows with as much grace and charm as the vineyard from where it originates.

Unveiling profound undertones of complexity, this gem continues to captivate and evolve, assuring its long-term potentiality in fine wine investment. Indeed, Masseto's 2015 Merlot epitomizes excellence and precision in both character and pedigree, an exemplary illustration worth savouring.

The release of this wine comes at a very happy time for the Masseto brand. The stunning 2015 Masseto is hitting the market just as the final touches are being made to the new Masseto winery. I'm told that Masseto might one day see other wines made under that same roof, so we can't exclude a future enlargement of the Masseto portfolio. The Masseto vineyard now covers seven hectares (divided into three plots), and the vines range from 30 to 40 years old. The wine is absolutely teeming with sensorial spirit that is transmitted through the bounty of the bouquet and the solid tannins of the mouthfeel. Nothing about the wine goes unnoticed or unchecked. Its many working pieces fit together with precision like a well-oiled machine. The 2015 vintage is characterized by a level of sheer exuberance that also defined the 2004 and 2007 vintages. Yet, it also reveals similar power, directness and linearity that we saw in the 2010 vintage. The 2015 Masseto takes the best of all those past vintages and confines those qualities to this single, spectacular bottle.
