There is lovely depth in the glass not to mention tons of balance. This is a beautiful poised Barbaresco from Vietti. The Masseria will require considerable patience but its balance is impeccable. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024.

Good deep red. Medicinal cherry and violet on the nose with a hint of nuts. Sweet and fresh with excellent inner-mouth energy and floral lift. But this also boasts an opulent texture with the sweet tannins arriving late... Good deep red. Medicinal cherry and violet on the nose with a hint of nuts. Sweet and fresh with excellent inner-mouth energy and floral lift. But this also boasts an opulent texture with the sweet tannins arriving late. I find this softer than the 2005 version but again these tannins reminded me of a Barolo.

Pure blackberry and lavender on the nose. Full-bodied with silky tannins a pretty core of ripe fruits and chewy fruit-coated tannins. Leaner than the 2005 but excellent all the same. Best after 2011. -JS
