2009 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana

SKU #1141631 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Powerful aromas of dark fruits, minerals and hints of new wood. Super perfumed. Licorice too. Full bodied, with a seamless tannin texture and wonderful length. The wine is ultra-polished and long. Super structure yet full of finesse. Best after 2014, but so amazing to taste. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, and 5% Petit Verdot. Inner quote mark (9/2011)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Giorgio Primo emerges from the glass with scents of blackberry, spice, leather, licorice and camphor. All of the elements are woven together nicely in this supple, juicy wine. There is a centeredness and focus to the fruit that is highly appealing. Giorgio Primo is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Proprietor Giampaolo Motta and consultant Stephane Derenoncourt have achieved remarkable polish and elegance here. The only thing missing is an element of visceral thrill. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021. Inner quote mark (6/2012)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A suave, polished style, combining blackberry and black cherry flavors with vanilla and sweet spice notes. There's a light mineral element, and this is firm and long. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2013 through 2022. Inner quote mark (10/2012)

K&L Notes

I've always been impressed with the wines that Giampaolo Motta has made at La Massa, and even more excited now that we are importing them directly. His small winery is just outside the village of Panzano in the heart of Chianti Classico, but his heart has always been in Bordeaux. Giampaolo's Giorgio Primo is a classic Bordeaux blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Starting with the 2009 vintage Giampaolo brought in the famed French consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt.
