A cool, rainy spring also led to an irregular and very long flowering period – with a two-week delay compared to the average – which reduced production and resulted in an uneven development of the grapes. Fortunately, the summer, which arrived punctually at the end of June, was perfect, dry and sunny, with a few peaks of heat in July and August. The slow vegetative development was ultimately beneficial because it deferred ripening until after the hottest period. The August storms significantly lowered temperatures, especially at night, which favoured aromatic expression. This however led to a later than average harvest, which started on 12th September with vineyard parcel “Masseto Alto” and concluded on 25th September with the last block of “Masseto Centrale”. TASTING NOTES: Masseto 2013 is the result of an overall late and fresh climate during the harvesting period. These are particularly favourable conditions for Merlot, which was able to ripen slowly and com- pletely in sunny weather, without excessive heat, which enhanced a full expression of the aromatic quali- ties and perfect ripening of the polyphenolic content. Intense ruby in colour, the nose immediately reveals fully ripe fruitiness endowed with great freshness and complexity, underlined by delicate notes of vanilla and cocoa. On the palate, the wine is substantial and rich, with great density, and a rare tannic quality of silkiness and smoothness. Black fruit aromas are accompanied by a strong note of freshness and a long, elegant finish, which is prolonged with a delicate hint of cocoa. \u003c!-- TABS --\u003e\u003c!-- \/TABS --\u003e","published_at":"2022-06-03T07:46:52-04:00","created_at":"2022-06-03T07:46:53-04:00","vendor":"Tenuta dell'Ornellaia ","type":"Red","tags":["Country_Italy","Finding_Inventory","Region_Tuscany","Size_750 ml.","Type_Cult","Type_Red","Varietal_Merlot","Vintage_2013","Volume_Discount","Winery_Tenuta dell'Ornellaia "],"price":99500,"price_min":99500,"price_max":99500,"available":false,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":40262482690084,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"A5115","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":false,"name":"Tenuta dell'Ornellaia  - 2013 - Masseto - 750 ml.","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":99500,"weight":2267,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_quantity":0,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"A5115","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[]}],"images":["\/\/finding.wine\/cdn\/shop\/products\/1_056ebf3e-cb3e-4ff3-82d9-b6a5bfc71d7a.png?v=1654273010"],"featured_image":"\/\/finding.wine\/cdn\/shop\/products\/1_056ebf3e-cb3e-4ff3-82d9-b6a5bfc71d7a.png?v=1654273010","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":22377933963300,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":2000,"width":2000,"src":"\/\/finding.wine\/cdn\/shop\/products\/1_056ebf3e-cb3e-4ff3-82d9-b6a5bfc71d7a.png?v=1654273010"},"aspect_ratio":1.0,"height":2000,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/finding.wine\/cdn\/shop\/products\/1_056ebf3e-cb3e-4ff3-82d9-b6a5bfc71d7a.png?v=1654273010","width":2000}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eCountry: \u003cstrong\u003eItaly\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eRegion: \u003cstrong\u003eTuscany\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eVarietal: \u003cstrong\u003eMerlot\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003eVintage: \u003cstrong\u003e2013\u003c\/strong\u003e - Size: \u003cstrong\u003e750 ml.\u003c\/strong\u003e - Type: \u003cstrong\u003eRed\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003eAfter a dry 2012, winter 2013 was characterized with mild and rainy weather, which caused a delay in budding of up to 15 days.
