Masseto is named after the rock-hard clusters of blue clay called ‘massi’ that form on the vineyard’s surface. While producing the wine they are always on the edge of making a great wine, and it can go either way. The place where Masseto grows is very natural, rough, unspoilt. There is always the risk of failure to produce the wine and the nature makes all the important decisions. When you open a bottle, it is like unleashing a liquid kaleidoscope. A rare combination of sumptuous opulence and polished elegance.

The Masseto of Tenuta dell'Ornellaia is an extraordinary red wine produced with Merlot grapes, coming from different territories of Masseto hill, in Tuscany. Excellent wine, endowed with great aromatic complexity, it shows an intense ruby red colour, while its bouquet is intense and fruited, enriched by spices. It is persistent, too, and above all it is perfect if tasted alone, or in alternative with platters based on red meats.
