Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

100 AG / 98 JS / 98 WA

A wine of extraordinary purity, silkiness and finesse, the 2010 Masseto has it all. The flavors are bright, precise and exceptionally pure, but it is the wine’s total balance that is utterly compelling. What more can I ask from a wine? Absolutely nothing. There is often something magical about cooler, later-ripening vintages at the estate. The interplay of more moderate conditions with the inherent power of these sites can yield wines of profound beauty and brilliance. The 2010 is all that, and more. (Magnum) — Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

“I doubt many people could pick the 2010 Masseto blind in a lineup of top-flight Right Bank wines. An utterly brilliant, focused Merlot, the 2010 Masseto is totally alive and vibrant. A myriad of aromas and flavors develop in the glass, but ultimately the 2010 has a crystalline quality that I have never before seen in Masseto. The 2010 isn’t quite as extroverted as the 2006, but it might very well move in that direction over time. Readers who are used to the forward, explosive fruit typical of young Masseto won’t find that here. Instead, the 2010 is built on serious energy. In my view, it is without question one of the very finest Massetos ever made. In 2010, only the older, core Masseto parcels (Masseto Centrale and Alto) were used.” — Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

"A wine with amazing depth and grace. Super-integrated tannins and a currant, berry character. Full body, great fruit and a long, long finish. There is a classic quality to this pure-merlot wonder. Delightfully fresh, too. Try in 2017." — James Suckling

"The 2010 Masseto is truly monumental, leaving you breathless and wordless all at once. Once you sip the wine, it takes a few minutes before you grasp the enormity of its beauty and potential. You almost have to wonder how enologist Axel Heinz could conceive of a wine this beautiful - and how did he execute it? I could wax poetic for hours: Dark cherry, chocolate, baking spice and tobacco smoke lift off the bouquet in thin veils and magical puffs. The quality of the aromas is exceptional, but again, the seamless integration is what makes Masseto a protagonist of Italian wine. No matter how much time goes by, that beauty will remain firmly etched in your memory bank. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030." — Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

"Rich and concentrated, showing blackberry, plum, clove and spice flavors buoyed by dense tannins. With aeration, a cedar note emerges and the texture becomes smooth and seamless. Tightly knit and refined, this will be terrific once the oak is integrated. Merlot. Best from 2016 through 2032. 360 cases imported." — Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
