Masseto, Bolgheri, Tuscany 2010

Masseto 2010

Nuanced and inviting aromas of blackberry, dark plums and sweet oak spice are joined by hints of green fruit and celery leaf. There is a more elegant weight and feel to the 2010 than the 2011, although it does not have the exuberance of the 2006 vintage. Here, the hallmark traits of fleshy mid-palate and velvety tannins are balanced by green herb notes and flavours of attractive bitter orange. It is reminiscent of a top quality right-bank Bordeaux which has been transferred to Tuscany and evolved into a richer, sunnier style.
