2016 La Massa "Carla 6" Toscana

SKU #1492344 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark By appearances you would not guess that this is Sangiovese. The 2016 Carla 6 exudes sheer intensity, darkness and richness. From the fruity flavors of cherry and cassis to floral and earthy notes of rosebud and damp soil, this one's got it all, plus that tertiary note of natural rubber that I love. It is beauty in a dark and deep wine. Carla 6 hits it out of the park. Some 4,910 bottles were produced at La Massa's new winery built to look like the inside of a Ferrari engine complete with rows of stainless steel tanks positioned like cylinders.

96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A tight and solid red with cherry and blackberry character and hints of black chocolate and wet earth. Some spices and flowers, as well. A solid and intense wine with super structure. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Another highlight in this range, the 2016 Carla 6 (100% Sangiovese) emerges from a single parcel on the estate measuring under a hectare and planted on gray schist/sand soils. Sweet red cherry, chalk, cedar, spice and dried flowers convey energy and vibrancy. The 2016 was done with manual punchdowns and aged in 500-liter barrels. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

The 100% Sangiovese Carla 6 is a blockbuster, concentrated, powerful, focused with enormous depth. You can sense this in the nose it is thick, heady but focused, it is a less “fruity” wine than one of a more serious nature, ok there’s hints of wild cherry, bits of middle eastern spice but it is more like smelling raw meat. On the palate the wine shows a lot of weight yet not clumsy over-ripeness it’s muscle, powerful, driving front to back that doesn’t allow you to overlook it, it is taught and rippling. The flavors begin to expand and more wild cherry, spice and hints of soil come to the forefront, but this wine is a youngster, it is going to need time to expand, it shows no rough or harsh tannins but has a future years away. The finish is fixated central line right down the middle of your tongue that is engulfed in a mass of power, it doesn’t go away soon it reminds you how serious this wine is and how time will reward you.
