TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA MASSETO 2009 (3) 94+ WA


TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA MASSETO 2009 TUSCANY. THE 2009 MASSETO BURSTS FROM THE GLASS WITH DARK RED BERRIES, BLACKBERRIES, FLOWERS, LICORICE AND TAR. IT SHOWS LOVELY UP-FRONT JUICINESS AND EXPRESSIVE INNER PERFUME IN A SURPRISINGLY ACCESSIBLE STYLE FOR THIS WINE. LIKE THE ORNELLAIA, THE 2009 MASSETO HAS QUITE A BIT OF FRESHNESS, ALTHOUGH IT, TOO, IS MEDIUM-BODIED IN STRUCTURE. IN THIS VINTAGE THE ORNELLAIA TEAM WAS ESPECIALLY SELECTIVE AND ONLY USED PART OF THE THREE VINEYARDS THAT TYPICALLY GO INTO MASSETO. I HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO TASTE EVERY VINTAGE OF MASSETO, MOST MORE THAN ONCE RECENTLY. MASSETO HAS A GREAT TRACK RECORD FOR AGING, EVEN IN THE SMALLEST, LEAST PROMISING OF VINTAGES. ANTICIPATED MATURITY: 2014-2029. JUNE 2012 94+ WA 3 BTS. (OWC) PER LOT $2,000 - $2,300




Price Realised: $2388
