Wine Advocate 95 Points: The Masseto 2020 Massetino (Merlot with a touch of Cabernet Franc) is extremely generous and rich. This wine puts it all out there in full view with a bouquet that is stitched together with ripe blackberry and black cherry preserves, black stone or pencil shaving, sweet spice, cigar, smoke and tar. This was a warm and sunny vintage, and you feel the power of those sunbeams locked within the dark, opulent and concentrated fruit on display here. This is a special treat, and the 2020 edition offers a clear identity for Massetino. This vintage comes close to out-powering the bouquet of the 2019 Masseto also hitting the market now

.Decanter 95 Points: The estate's second wine, Massetino is produced in even smaller quantities than the flagship Masseto. First produced in the 2017 vintage from younger vines now approaching 20 years old, with some plot selection too, it has always included a small proportion of Cabernet Franc in the blend along with the Merlot. In the mouth, soft, bright cherry and peppery spice are given definition by clean acidity and fine-grained tannins, with a long, floral and fresh finish. Gorgeous.
