Tasting Notes

The 2005 Masseto (Merlot) is simply gorgeous. A wine of extraordinary class and personality, it remains very primary in its dark fruit, licorice, cassis and toasted oak. It offers notable concentration and well-integrated tannins, all of which convey an impression of awesome harmony, finesse and balance. The tricky growing season seems to have been less of an issue for the Merlot, particularly in the old-vine Masseto Centrale vineyard. The 2005 Masseto has been superb every time I have tasted it thus far. As is often the case, the wine requires at least a few years of bottle age before it becomes approachable. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025.

Provenance

From a private wine collector in Montreal looking to thin out his personal wine collection. Warren Porter states that this collection is of exceptional provenance containing rare large formats of Ornellaia, Tignanello and Sassicaia along with a 3L Haut Brion. It also contains rare and highly sought after Screaming Eagle, Harlan and Dominus.
