"The 2012 vintage combines the principal characteristics of a great Masseto: rich and generous but also very fresh and with a firm structure in a wine of great intensity and complexity. The color is intense and dark, olfactory impact develops classic notes of red and black fruit, chocolate and liquorice, subtly enhanced by the toasting of the wood. The palate shows wellrounded and full, with a thick, dense tannic texture that boasts rich fruit and spice notes. The finish is prolonged with a lively and vibrant acid vein that closes on a note of intense freshness."

"Fantastic aromas of lavender, rosemary, violets and currants. Full body, a wonderful concentration of fruit yet tense and taunt energy. The new wood is exposed now but will become integrated and polished. Give it three or four years together. The pure merlot magic is there. The 2011 was a perfect wine, and this is very close indeed. Drink in 2019. "

"Once again, Masseto shows why it is one of the world's truly great wines. Vibrant and nuanced in the glass, the 2012 possesses magnificent complexity to match its textured, inviting personality. Black cherry, espresso, smoke and licorice meld into the creamy, resonant finish. The 2012 is not a huge Masseto, but rather a wine that convinces with its exceptional balance. In 2012, I give Masseto a slight edge over Ornellaia. Conversely, in 2011, it was the opposite."

"A serious red, from the intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry, plum, spice and mineral to the concentrated flavor profile and complex structure. The vibrant finish shows terrific length. All the components are there, but this just needs some time to come together. Merlot. Best from 2018 through 2030."
