Masseto Toscana IGT 2003, Tuscany, Italy
PRESS: Robert Parker - 96 points. "Tasted at Jeurg Richter’s pre-Climens lunch. The Masseto ’03 oozes class with a ravishing, opulent bouquet with raspberry, kirsch, Kalamata olives and a touch of undergrowth. It has enticing definition and a sense of natural calm. The palate is beautifully balanced with svelte tannins, a nonchalant sense of self-being with gentle grip, filigree texture, more black than the red fruits evident on the nose, cedar and cigar box towards the understated finish. Stunning. Drink now-2020+"
