Masseto is a 'Cru' that comes from the vineyard of just seven acres, known for its exceptional terroir. Merlot, with great structure and longevity, is produced in very small quantities due to the rigorous selection and philosophy of excellence that inspires. Listed as one of the most exclusive wines in the world, sought after by collectors and the protagonist in the most important international auctions, collecting Masseto consistently excellent ratings and unanimous support from the most important international opinion leaders.
Dark, concentrated ruby.
Of great olfactory impact, it recalls small red fruits in jam and subspirit, withered spices and violets, then vanilla tobacco, fern, underbrush, cinchona and mineral gusts.
Soft and structured, it has tannins of remarkable workmanship and exuberant freshness. Very long persistence, with fruity and mineral returns.
