Winemaker Notes

Rich and decadent aromas of berries and grilled meat. Full-bodied, soft and round with lots of fruit and a caressing, velvety texture.

50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

WS 94
Wine Spectator
This structured but balanced red offers polished, silky tannins that caress the palate and deliver beautiful fruit, with plenty of currant, black olive and licorice character. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvingon and Petit Verdot. Best after 2013.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 Giorgio Primo comes across as a touch lean at first, but then opens up over time. The 2008 presents a slightly darker profile than the 2007s in a tightly coiled style that is typical of the year. A melange of rosemary, herbs, spices, mocha, leather and licorice adds considerable complexity and character on the mid-palate and finish. In 2008 the blend was 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

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.
