The single vineyard, 100% barrel-fermented Merlot, Masseto, is stunning in both the 1992 and 1993 vintages. The 1993 Masseto reveals a deeper, more saturated ruby/purple color, plenty of sweet, toasty oak, gobs of fruit, full body, plenty of suppleness, and gorgeously pure, sweet fruit. In a blind tasting, it would be easy to mistake for a top-notch, right bank Bordeaux. The 1993 is still youthful, but accessible. It can be drunk now and over the next 10-12 years. It should come as no surprise that this wine is Italy's greatest Merlot, and is in a class with the first-growths of Bordeaux. The Marchese Lodovico Antinori makes these luxuriously fruity, rich wines from his vineyards in Bolgheri, an area not far from the famed Sassicaia. With the help of Bordeaux's brilliant oenologist, Michel Rolland, these wines seem to be going from strength to strength. Aug 1997, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 1997-2009



The 1993 Masseto is a rich, layered wine. This isn't a particularly big Masseto, yet the wine possesses striking balance and a totally harmonious, complete personality that is hard to capture with mere words. This mid-weight Masseto is pure pleasure. Apr 2011, www.vinous.com, Drink: 2013-2021



The first vintage when consulting enologist Michel Rolland was involved in the entire winemaking process. It shows fresh herb and plum character and sweet tobacco. Medium to full body with fine tannins and freshness. Drink now. Oct 2014, www.jamessuckling.com
