Tenuta dell’Ornellaia Masseto 2008

 1.299,95

PARKER (96)
The Masseto 2008 is stylistically closer to the 2006. An irregular crop set lowered yields while the warm, dry summer concentrated its efforts on the smaller crop. Cooler temperatures towards the middle of September lengthened the cycle and allowed for the full development of aromatics and phenolic ripeness. The 2008 is a gorgeous, dense Masseto endowed with massive fruit and tons of structure. The only missing element is a degree of finesse, but that may develop in bottle. For now, the 2008 is a wine to bury in the deepest corner of the cellar.

Beschrijving

Masseto 2008 is een absolute wereld topper. Masseto wordt gemaakt van 100% Merlot afkomstig van de Masseto wijngaard (zoals de naam al aangeeft) in Bolgheri,Toscane. Deze Masseto wijngaard behoort tot het beroemde Tenuta dell”Ornalaia waarvan de familie Frescobaldi eigenaar is. Zij kochten het weer van de Mondavi’s. Kortom, dit zijn geen kleine namen….. Ieder jaar kunnen we een paar flessen bemachtigen. De wijngaard bestaat uit lagen blauwe klei, vandaar ook de fleidng van de naam. Er liggen grote stukken klei in de wijngaard en dat heet “Masse”. Klei en Merlot is een succesvol huwelijk, denk aan Pomerol. De wijngaard is 7 ha en men vinifieert zo’n maximaal 40 hl per ha. Uiteraard gaat alles op nieuwe Barriques voor zo’n kleine 2 jaar.

A dark, extracted red, offering plenty of juicy plum, blackberry and violet notes framed by vanilla and toast. Squarely in the modern camp, yet this works. The tannins are slightly gritty now, but should mesh with time. Merlot.
