Winemaker Notes

Primarily sangiovese with about 10% merlot for balance. Beautifully intense and brilliant color. with a nose that finds notes of ripe berry fruit. Waves of gentile spice enchant the palate.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Motta's stylish 2004 Giorgio Primo (50% Sangiovese, 40% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvingon and Petit Verdot) is a gorgeous effort. A lively, dark ruby, it presents a beautiful array of cherry, smoke, spice, tobacco, flower, and earth aromas. Opulent in its expression of fruit yet supported by classic structure, it shows outstanding length on the palate as well as a persistent, fresh finish, with exquisite overall balance. It is the finest Giorgio Primo yet. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2019.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Has loads of blackberry and currant, with fresh flowers. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. A beauty. Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best after 2008. 2,900 cases made.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This vintage has some Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot in the blend to back the Sangiovese and Merlot, and is more complex and complete. There’s cherry, tobacco, leather, spice, black fruit and a touch of cool freshness in the form of leafy greens. It’s a sophisticated wine with tight tannins and a long, dusty finish.

La Massa

La Massa, Italy
Giampaolo Mota, the eldest son of Neapolitan family became the "black sheep" because he decided not go into the family's leather tanning business. His grandfather Giorgio was the only family member to support him in his venture into the wine business and thus, the top wine at La Massa carries his name. Giampaolo studied in France with renowned oenologist Emile Peynaud, working in St Emilion and Pomerol where he developed a fundamental understanding of the chemistry of the wine. He feels that this study, especially of the reductive/oxygenative cycle of red wine helps him make structured, solid, long-lived wines that are also very fruit driven.

Legendary in Italy for its Renaissance art and striking landscape, Tuscany is also home to many of the country’s best red wines. Sangiovese reigns supreme here, as either the single varietal, or a dominant player, in almost all of Tuscany’s best.

A remarkable Chianti, named for its region of origin, will have a bright acidity, supple tannins and plenty of cherry fruit character. From the hills and valleys surrounding the medieval village of Montalcino, come the distinguished and age-worthy wines based on Brunello (Sangiovese). Earning global acclaim since the 1970s, the Tuscan Blends are composed solely of international grape varieties or a mix of international and Sangiovese. The wine called Vine Nobile di Montepulciano, composed of Prognolo Gentile (Sangiovese) and is recognized both for finesse and power.
