88 Points | International Wine Cellar , September/October 2004

Deep, bright red. Pretty, floral aromas of dark berries, cocoa powder, cedar and truffle. Juicy and suave on entry, then moderately rich in the middle, with sound acidity and a slightly earthy, roasted character. The roasted character shades toward raisin on the finish. The fruit here was harvested after a rainy spell in '96. (Interestingly, the 1996 Masseto shows finer tannins than the '95, and today is clearly the better wine. )
