Sub region: Tuscany
Variety: Merlot
Rating: Wine Advocate 97

The Masseto vineyard covers 7 hectares (divided into 3 plots), and the vines range from 30-40 years of age.
The wine is made from 100% Merlot that are sorted twice before and after destemming. The fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and the wine matures in 100% French new oak (medium toasted) for 24 months before bottled.

Masseto was once part of the blend used in the wines from Tenuta dell'Ornellaia. Later was separated and is now vinified on its own winery and sold as a single vineyard.

The winery is owned by the Frescobaldi Family since 2005, and it was founded by a partnership between the Antinori family and the Mondavi family from Napa.
