One of the greatest wine-making domains can be found in the heart of Tuscany – Tenuta dell'Ornellaia.  A neighbour to the famous Bolgheri, it produces marvellous vintages, one of which was born in 1986:  Masseto.  It bears the name of the seven-hectare parcel, the Merlot variety of which is the king.  Masseto is a pure Merlot with the Mediterranean scents that wine waiters call the "Italian Pétrus".
