2013 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana

SKU #1189563 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark This is a truly sumptuous wine that stands as a tall testament to the winemaking talents of Giampaolo Motta, his vision for interpreting this vintage and his specific vineyard site in Panzano in Chianti. This standout wine brings Fattoria la Massa to a new level of accomplishment and opens an exciting new chapter of possibility. The 2013 Giorgio Primo (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot) is dark and impenetrable on first impact. The aromas accelerate slowly and grow evenly in power and intensity after a few quick swirls of the glass. The bouquet peels back with dark fruit aromas, baking spice and Mediterranean herb. The effect is seamless and smooth. A velvety texture is accented by full-bodied richness and just enough freshness to keep the palate energized. And, of course, this is just the beginning of a long cellar life. Fattoria la Massa has reached a watershed moment with the release of its fantastic 2013 Giorgio Primo (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot). This is an extraordinary achievement from a little estate in Panzano in Chianti that has always forged forward along its own independent path. The level of sophistication and pedigree demonstrated by this wine puts it on par with Italy's best blended reds. (ML) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

Outer quote mark This is a focused red for the vintage with blueberry, mineral and slate aromas and flavors. Medium body, firm tannins and a focused finish. Very fine and polished. Inner quote mark (7/2016)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Giorgio Primo is dark, powerful and inviting. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and a touch of French oak make a strong first impression as the 2013 shows off its distinctive personality. Deceptively medium in body, the 2013 possesses notable intensity and overall structure. Black cherry, plum, smoke, lavender and graphite infuse the authoritative finish. The 2013 is a terrific Giorgio Primo. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2016)

La Massa Toscana claims that Toscany could make Bordeaux better than, Bordeaux! Every wine making country in the world has a 'Bordeaux Blend' for a reason, Bordeaux wines are delicious and if taking away the market aspect, unpretentious. Giorgio Primo, however, is delicious. A very robust and powerful wine making a statement. Big lush fruit of blackberries and black cherries with powerful balanced tannins and a definite sense of longevity. This is a serious wine and needs to be taken seriously. Put one in you cellar today!
Drink from 2018 to 2035
