TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA MASSETO 2008 (3) 97+ WA


TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA MASSETO 2008 TUSCANY. THE 2008 MASSETO IS ANOTHER HUGE WINE. IT BOASTS TONS OF ENERGY IN A TENSE, INWARD STYLE I CAN ONLY DESCRIBE AS IMPLOSIVE, AS IF THE WINE IS HOLDING BACK ALL OF ITS ENERGY. A DEEP CORE OF BLACK FRUIT, GRILLED HERBS, LICORICE AND NEW LEATHER EMERGES FROM TIME TO TIME, BUT THE TANNINS ARE STILL IMPOSING. THERE IS NO SHORTAGE OF PEDIGREE. I FULLY EXPECT THE 2008 TO DEVELOP INTO ONE OF THE GREAT MASSETOS. NEEDLESS TO SAY, IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO TASTE THE 2008 IN VERTICAL TASTINGS IN THE FUTURE. ANTICIPATED MATURITY: 2018-2033. JUNE 2012 97+ WA 3 BTS. (OWC) PER LOT $2,100 - $2,400




Price Realised: $3060
