($150) Deep purple color. Cabernet Franc dominant on the nose with peppers, leather, minimal fruit. Concentrated Bordeaux Blend, though obvious international influence. On the palate intense tannins, chocolate, dark fruit. Very young, but enjoyable nevertheless

Actually cracked this open when I had some Italian food and thought it was good, but not great. I didn't finish it since it was late on a Sunday evening (I simply re-corked for the next night). BUT, boy was this thing was great on Monday afternoon - I guess it needed a bit more breathing than I allowed on Day 1.

Winemaker's Notes:

2001 is a very “classic” vintage and shows the peculiar characteristics of the Bolgheri terroir. Masseto 2001 has a great structure while showing balance and harmony, due primarily to the perfect ripening of the merlot grapes.
