Masseto
Tenuta dell’Ornellaia Masseto founded in 1981 is considered to be one of the seminal ‘Super Tuscans’. A 100% Merlot varietal, produced from a 7 hectare clay-based vineyard, Masseto has gained international acclaim. With hand harvesting, individual vinification, ageing of parcel lots, Masseto is a truly bespoke wine. Around only 30,000 bottles are produced annually delivering up a wine with massive colour, aroma and concentration.
