2005 Toscana IGT Masseto, Tuscany, Italy

Very firm on the nose, loads of very ripe but astonishingly cool dark fruit, eucalyptus and some mint, roasted, spicy oak. Very full-bodied, but still relatively cool, dark fruit, roasted oak and chocolate, some more eucalyptus, fairly prominent youthful but also very fine tannins, noticeable but very well integrated alcohol, persistent and deep, quite compact structure but on a grand scale, at this stage is not showing a lot of fine detail, oak still fairly prominent on a long finish.
