The iconic Masseto wine from Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is sourced from three Tuscan vineyards which are exclusively planted to Merlot, each bringing a subtle, yet essential, facet to the wine. 

2013 was a great year for Merlot, the temperatures allowing slow and gentle ripening of the grapes. Juicy fruit are followed by warm spices and chocolate in this opulent wine. Wait a year or two before opening and then enjoy for several more! 

Information About Tenuta Dell Ornellaia
The Ornellaia Estate was created by Marchese Lodovico Antinori in 1981 and is located near the picturesque village of Bolgheri, on the unspoilt Tuscan coast.  Located near the sea and sheltered by the neighbouring hills, the microclimate guarantees perfect ripening conditions; gentle sea breezes temper the summer heat, and hills provide protection from the cold winter winds. Alluvial, volcanic and marine soils provide a unique tapestry upon which Ornellaia has planted the classic varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot to international acclaim.
 
… I believe its continual evolution will propel it beyond the limits of tasting and time. - Axel Heinz – Winemaker.

Tasting Date : 28 October 2016

The 2013 Masseto paints a glorious picture of Tuscany. It captures an inspired moment in time and walks an impressive tightrope between power and elegance. In my preview tasting last year, I noticed the firm textural richness of the 2013 vintage and the crystalline sharpness of its aromas. Thanks to 12 additional months of bottle aging, that impression is evermore constant and concrete. The focus is there, yet the wine has also fleshed out and put on more velvety definition especially in terms of mouthfeel. It wears its pedigree with pride, but most importantly it offers the balance and integration to promise a long and healthy aging future. The 2013 vintage follows closely on the heels of the impeccable 2006 and 2010 vintages in terms of cellaring potential. This is definitely a bottle that should interest collectors.
