MARCHESI LODOVICO A. MASSETO 1995 (1)

Tuscany.
scraped label

A mature wine with berry, chocolate and mineral aromas and flavors. It shows extremely well for a less than perfect vintage. It's full and round with a wonderful silky tannin texture. It's so savory. This has come together beautifully with age. Drink or hold. July 2014 jamessuckling.com JS 95

TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA MASSETO 1998 (1)

Tuscany.

This is a good example of how the 1998 vintage was better in the region of Bolgheri than 1997. It shows superb fruit with berry and chocolate character and hints of nuts and dark fruit. It's still full-bodied with chewy yet polished tannins. This is tight and like a wine 10 years younger. Decant three or four hours before serving. July 2014 jamessuckling.com WA 97 JS 99

TENUTA DELL'ORNELLAIA MASSETO 1999 (1)

Tuscany.

This is sometimes overlooked by Masseto lovers. It shows the precision and finesse of a top Masseto with firm tannins and bright blueberry and violet character with a long fresh finish. It's full-bodied, and so very polished with wonderful texture. Drink or hold. July 2014 jamessuckling.com WA 95 JS 95
