Wine Advocate (WA) Review

WA 93
The 1998 Masseto is another wine that is drinking particularly well today. It is opulent and expansive on the palate, where it offers plenty of ripe dark fruit along with more advanced notes of tobacco, showing much length and style although the tannins finish slightly hard and dry. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.-Antonio Galloni

Wine Spectactor (WS) Review

WS 96
Dark color, with intense aromas of green and black olives and rich, ripe raspberries. Full-bodied, with big velvety tannins and a bold, exciting finish. This is very structured. Full throttle.--Masseto non-blind vertical. Best after 2007. 2,580 cases made. –JS
