Massetino 2017, Masseto’s second wine
Massetino, second wine of the famous Tuscan estate, will make its official debut in October, with very limited numbers: 5000 bottles available only at selected retailers in Italy and the USA. The launching price will be about 40% of Masseto. The famous Super Tuscan of the group controlled by the Frescobaldi family has reached 6-700 euros online (and over 1000 at auction).
What Massetino 2017 is like
The difficult 2017 vintage, one of the hottest and dryest in recent years, meant the grapes needed to be selected extremely carefully to preserve the quality of the vintage. By reducing the quantity of Masseto produced, the winery gave rise to the new Massetino. It is an impenetrable red, with a complex and intense bouquet dominated by plum and blackberry notes. The palate proves rich, generous and firmly structured, extraordinarily fresh and assertive.
