Fattoria La Massa

The Fattoria La Massa estate is situated in the hills of Panzano, in the prestigious 'Conca d’Oro' (Golden Basin) of the Chianti Classico DOCG zone. The estates history dates back to the fifteenth century and was acquired by the current owner Giampaolo Motta in 1992. Under Motta's ownership the estate has thrived. The first vintage of the flagship 'Giorgio Primo' (sold as Chianti Classico then) was awarded the prestigious 'Tre Bicchieri' (three glasses) from the Italian wine guide Gambero Rosso. The praise of the international press has been ongoing since. Alongside top oenologist Carlo Ferrini, they have made dramatic improvements to the vineyards; planting the vines closer together, introducing new clones and experimenting with the classic Super Tuscan grape varieties: Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Wanting more freedom to develop their own style, Motta decided to start producing only IGT wines that were driven by La Massa's terroir.

Fattoria La Massa Giorgio Primo 2015 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97)

This wine blew my mind. The 2015 Giorgio Primo is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. I'm told that the percentage of Merlot will increase in 2016 (to a majority role) but will diminish by a large margin in 2017 because that hot vintage was so difficult on early-ripening varieties. The bouquet is nothing short of explosive, with inky black fruit followed by pencil shaving, chalkboard, wet river stone and all the other beautiful mineral notes that I so closely associate with Panzano in Chianti. Giorgio Primo is a baritone Tuscan red with spectacular depth and range to its inner voice. It sings loud and long, and in perfect melody too. It is a real beauty.
