Masseto, Bolgheri, Tuscany 2013

Masseto 2013

The 2013 vintage was scorching hot in the summer, but August storms delayed the ripening and the grapes were harvested two weeks later than the 2011 and 2012. ‘This slow vegetative development favoured aromatic expression’, comments Heinz. The 2013 has lots of top notes of creamy oak spice and dark berried fruit. A soft and round first impression evolves into a rich, but not heavy, wine with a gentle appeal and a nuanced palate of green peppercorn, tobacco spice, lively redcurrant and vanilla. It has a suave and energetic personality.
