Masseto 2002 is a full-bodied Supertuscan red wine produced in the Bolgheri sub-region of Tuscany. Masseto is the iconic single-vineyard Merlot-based Tuscan red wine of Tenuta dell`Ornellaia in Bolgheri. Masseto is produced from an organically farmed 8ha vineyard characterised by distinctive blue-grey clay soils reminiscent of those found at Château Petrus in Pomerol, thus earning this wine the soubriquet `the Italian Petrus`. "The 2002 is another eye-opening wine. The year is mostly remembered for its cool, wet summer and a number of dilute, uninteresting wines. Not here. The 2002 Masseto will go down as one of the handful of truly great wines made that year. I imagine in ten or twenty years it will be fascinating to taste alongside Miani`s Merlot, Soldera`s Brunello Riserva and Conterno`s Monfortino. There is no question the wine is in that league. Today the 2002 remains a baby, with tons of depth in its dark fruit. Hints of rose petal and spice develop in the glass, adding further complexity. There is plenty of structure underneath, suggesting the 2002 will be a very long-lived wine. Today, it is a knock-out." Antonio Galloni, 2011
