The Masseto winery is the monolithic physical symbol of this wine, as is the wall of huge rocks marking the boundary of the estate. When you think of a great institution there is always a point of reference to a specific building. The same now applies to Masseto and its vineyards.
Giovanni Geddes da Filicaja, CEO
Designed by architects Hikaru Mori and Maurizio Zito of the ZitoMori Studio, the building represents and reinforces Masseto’s discreet but powerful identity.
The vivid contrast between the discreet external form, and the cave-like temple interior, can be surprising when entering the Winery for the first time.
The architects called their underground design concept, The Quarry.
