The 1999 Masseto was just as I remembered, which is to say huge, powerful and structured. Unlike the 2000, the 1999 is headed for a long life of fabulous drinking.
Robert Parker 96
The 1999 Masseto is a cool, inward wine graced with exquisite finesse, but it still needs a few years in bottle to show its potential. That said, it is pretty spectacular even today. This is a vintage that will appeal to readers who enjoy firm, structured wines. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024.
