Item Description

Vinous Media 92
Medium deep straw yellow with golden tinges. Ripe aromas and flavors of apricot, balsamic oils, bergamot and guava. Round and tactile but also very fresh in the mouth with hints of orange oil complicating flavors of grapefruit and mountain herbs in the mouth. Finishes long, multilayered and dense. An outstanding Catarratto. Ian D'Agata, August 1, 2019

The Story
Masso is the name of the cru from which the grapes hail. The name has its origins in the rocky-sandy stone with high components of iron. This strong mineral structure confers to the wine a particular sapidity and freshness.

On the palate, it is very fresh and persistent, with a remarkable acidity and balanced sapidity, long intense aromatics of fruit and freshness.
