I spent the day today in Tuscany at the brand new winery of Masseto. It was the inaugural tasting held at this brand new facility and I was honored to be in the room with the owners & winemakers to taste through the 1998, 2004 & 2015 vintages. A brief, fascinating tour of the underground, gravity-fed bunker was followed by a spectacular lunch.
Tuscany truly is a special place with Masseto sitting high up overlooking the coast, the king of the hill in every respect. The 2015 nudged out the 1998 vintage for me but attempting to pick a clear winner was futile. The winery, the event and the pure quality that runs through the facility, along with my very humble hosts being the real winners. Masseto – the epitome of class. Sincere thanks to the folks at Vintus Imports for this invitation. It was a very special day.
