Suckling über: Massetino

-- Suckling: Very attractive aromas of currants, spices and sweet tobacco with some graphite and slate. Full-bodied with a rich and rather dense mouth feel, plenty of fruit and a spicy, dark-chocolate aftertaste. A solid and sturdy second wine from Masseto. Try in 2023. 95/100

Parker über: Massetino

-- Parker: Tasted before bottling, the 2019 Massetino is shaping up beautifully. This is the third vintage made of the Merlot-based wine enhanced with a small part of Cabernet Franc. The Cabernet Franc is what distinguishes this euphemistically diminutive expression of Masseto, and it is its distinctive vinous signature. The 2019 vintage is soft and pliant but also incredibly rich and layered. It offers generous black fruit with ripe cherry and blackberry. Spice, tobacco and campfire ash fill in the rear and build the aromatic profile of this wine that is already stacked tall and proud. We still need to see how the 2019 plays out in the bottle, and I am especially interested to gauge how the thick and rich fruit concentration works against the less pronounced acidity of the vintage. 94-96/100

Falstaff über: Massetino

-- Falstaff: Sattes, funkelndes Rubin mit Violettschimmer. Intensive und ansprechende Nase mit viel satter Beerenfrucht, Schwarzkirsche, Brombeere und Cassis, dazu etwas Nougat und Tabak. Im Ansatz dicht und tiefgründig, dunkle Beerenfrucht, öffnet sich mit griffigem Tannin, im Finale noch ein wenig diffus, braucht Lagerung.94/100
