#31 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
"Rich, almost decadent aromas of crushed berry, meat and mole. Turns floral. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. A beauty. Best after 2011."
"The 2006 La Massa is 60% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 14 months in French oak (20% new). It is a gorgeous, fruit-driven wine with superb depth in its plums, dark cherries, herbs and sweet toasted oak. It offers terrific balance in its fruit, structure and acidity, all of which come together in a very pretty La Massa."
