The generous rains of the preceding season, however, had adequately supplied the deep soils with sufficient water reserves to arrive through the summer of 2003.

Due to the hot conditions, the upper part of the Masseto vineyard (‘Masseto Alto’) was in fact picked on 25th August, while the clayey soils situated in the heart of the vineyard, (‘Masseto Centrale’), were able to remain relatively cool and this contributed to optimal ripeness, which was reached on 18th September. TASTING NOTES: In a vintage that pushed Merlot to its limit, the blue clay supplied just about enough freshness and moisture to allow to produce a textbook Masseto, showing the ripe and exotic character of the vintage but avoiding any heaviness or harshness.
