We tend to the estate with passion and professionalism.
We want the new generation to follow the path that we marked out with lasting enthusiasm.
That’s why we named “Pachàr” after them: PAblo and CHARlotte. It’s a very special wine for us, in which we metaphorically embrace our hopes for the future.
The vegetative cycle of the 2004 vintage unfolded with amazing precision.
Winter rainfall and spring sunshine were in measure, triggering the budburst phase on time between the end of March and the beginning of April before continuing on to a very fertile flowering phase. Finally, the summer temperatures rose to a crescendo, starting with mild temperatures and ending with a sunny and warm August.

Winter rains and warm spring days punctuated the 2006 vintage. Then, a long period of drought during the veraison phase resulted in smaller berries than in previous seasons. However, the summer temperatures remained at sustainable levels, giving the grapes time to become more rounded and to develop good aromatic capacity. Finally, the climatic conditions during the ripening phase gave the grapes an excellent sugar concentration and a nice freshness to our wines.

The 2009 growing season had a cool, rainy winter and early spring, and bud break occurred as in previous years. May was dry, but the rains returned in June, but without negatively impacting the growth or flowering of the vines. We had almost no rain during the summer, and temperatures often exceeded 35°C, with very small differences between day and night. Strong sirocco winds from Africa between the end of August and the beginning of September accelerated the ripening process, and the harvest of this vintage was one of the fastest and earliest in the history of Masseto. Harvesting began on 2 September and ended on 10 September, yielding a total of five different batches.
Nose: earthy with gunpowder notes, slight toasted notes
Palate: full and pleasant

The flowering phase of the 2010 vintage was rather rainy which was an additional challenge for our winemakers. However, the summer was ideal for the development of the grapes, alternating between sunny days and some rain. This period allowed our grapes to reach an optimal stage of ripening for an ideal polyphenol concentration and aromatic intensity.

On the whole, the winter was cold with temperatures below 0°C and accompanied by snowfall. The spring was also cool, notably due to frequent rainfall, which fed the water table and thus supplied the vineyards with water during the veraison phase in the summer. This summer period was also very hot and dry with temperatures exceeding 35°C so our vines, well rooted in the soil, were able to draw on the freshly filled water tables.

The 2013 vintage was impacted by a harsh winter with alternating sub-zero temperatures and heavy snowfalls. The spring was cool and rainy. However, despite a cool summer overall compared to previous seasons, a few heat spikes boosted the Sangiovese veraison period. Finally, the fluctuations in daytime and night-time temperatures favoured a progressive ripening phase.
Nose: impression of wood, beautiful notes of dried fruit, very good aromaticity and complexity
Palate: nice fatness and yet supported by a good acidity
Comments: opulent wine, very good ageing, Faye’s favourite
In 2014, the relatively warm winter weather and the mild spring were the triggers for an early budding phase. However, the rainfall spread throughout the winter period rebalanced the vegetative cycle to allow the summer to accomplish its task gently: veraison. Thus, the bunches were able to mature progressively for an optimal harvest.

The winter of 2015 came later in our region, thus slowing down the vegetative awakening of the vines and the crying period by about ten days. Spring came at the right time, offering the vineyards a flowering period punctuated by sunny days and some rainfall. Finally, the long summer, with high temperatures exceeding 30°C and ideal climatic conditions, gave our grapes an ideal ripening.

The 2016 vintage is a great year that the winegrowers of our region still remember. In addition to having benefited from a late spring, it was mainly the abundant rainfall during the flowering period that contributed to the success of this season. Then, the warm and sunny summer allowed the grape varieties to ripen earlier for an optimal harvest and in particular a Sangiovese harvest of exceptional quality.

In our region, the 2017 vintage is known to have been an early year. After a mild and dry winter, the early bud break and spring showers allowed the flowering phase to start earlier than in previous years. Thanks to a hot, dry summer, the ripe, polyphenol-rich grapes could be harvested at the end of August.
The winter was cold, with alternating precipitation and snow, followed by a spring punctuated by periods of sunshine and rain. However, spring temperatures were maintained at high levels, allowing the seasonality of the phenological stages to be respected. Finally, the summer of 2018 recorded high temperatures triggering thunderstorms in the second part of August. This was ultimately beneficial for the ripening phase.
Nose: mineral, tropical fruit, some creamy-caramel notes
The 2019 vintage suffered from a cold winter with very little rain, pushing back the budburst period to early April. The delay accumulated during the flowering phase, notably due to the low temperatures recorded in spring. Thus, following the delay of the whole vegetative cycle, the maturation of the berries in phenolic compounds and in aromatic capacity only arrived in the autumn.
Nose: gunpowder, floral background, some vegetal notes, woody note well integrated in the nose
Palate: elegant, without much minerality, a Chardonnay of a more elegant style than fat and buttery
Note: great ageing potential
