La Massa IGT 2007 is a blend of 70% Sangiovese and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon harvested at the end of October and 20% Merlot, picked in the first half of September.
The courageous decision to wait for teh moment of perfect maturation of the grapes, the erudite management of the maturation process and aging in wood resulted in fruitful wines with a good polyphenolic concentration without any notes of ripeness.
"The 2007 La Massa reveals unusual harmony and grace. This expansive, generous La Massa offers plenty of perfumed red fruit, licorice, new leather and spices in a seamless, opulent style. The wine’s balance and sheer class are impeccable. In 2007 La Massa is 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 12 months in oak, 10% new. La Massa remains one of the top relative values in Tuscany. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2017"
