Masseto

2005 {(currentVariant.size?' | ':'')} {( currentVariant.size )}
Toscana IGT, Tuscany, Italy
Type Red
Grape Merlot
Drink Now/Cellar

The fruit of a particularly late harvest, Masseto displays great aromatic maturity, with fruit and spice joining the usual balsamic and mentholated accents. Ample, rich, and full on the palate, its once potent tannins have mellowed to leave a sense of great vivacity and freshness to counterbalance the richness.

Tasted next to the 2002, the 2005 Masseto is perhaps a bit edgier, with an extra kick of tannic intensity that gives the wine its sense of direction and a good kick of energy too. I very much admire the tension in the 2005, a wine built on freshness, aromatic depth and mid-weight structure. Cool, rainy weather towards the end of the season resulted in a late harvest that took place between September 14 and 30.
