Exotic, ripe and voluptuous, the 1998 Masseto is another wine that is in the zone today. The 1998 is an especially flamboyant Masseto. There is no shortage of richness in the cherry jam, mocha, plum and spice flavors. This is another gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next decade.
Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026

The 1998 is even better. It shares much of the richness of the 1997, but with more delineation and nuance. The wine blossoms beautifully on the mid-palate and finish, with layers of expressive fruit and fabulous overall balance. This is a stunning Masseto. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.
