Masseto Toscana Merlot 1999

$775

Beautiful violet, berry and raspberry character. Very fruity and pretty. Full-bodied, with supersilky tannins and a long, long finish. This is seductive and modern. It shows excellent potential for aging... Wine Spectator

Still a baby and I’d give it another saved at least. There’s the chance that the acid may fade so its a little bit of a crapshoot it’s going to stay balanced.

Very nice. Doesn’t ring out as Italian, but definitely a nice well aged wine.

Magnum 1999 Tenuta Dell'Ornellaia Masseto Merlot. Lunch at RW w S&L DiM and P&S Co. Drank after the '78 Heitz Martha's out of magnum. This wine was much, much bigger, as we expected and drank beautifully. Hard to say which we enjoyed more. Awesome.
