A bottle of 1997 Masseto Tenuta Dell' Ornellaia from Bolgheri,Tuscany harvested from seven hectares of Merlot grapes bottled as a single varietal since the 1986 vintage.
'This is the first legendary Masseto. It shows a tangy and exciting character on the palate with dried berry and strawberry character. Fabulous and energetic acidity with firm tannins. Just coming around now. Decant two hours in advance. 98/100' James Suckling, 2014
