Looking for your new favourite wine, look no further. This Super-Tuscan from the glorious rolling hills of the Chianti region in Tuscany, delivers on every element. Taking notes from time in Bordeaux, owner Giampaolo Motta left behind the family business in Naples, to embark on embracing the art of winemaking in Tuscany.
Purchasing 27 hectares in 1991, the journey began. In 1998, Giampaolo chose to create a wine that spoke to him rather than adhere to the classification mandates of Chianti Classico designation. Continuous receiving critic praise, La Massa is the perfect romance of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
Drink now, tuck away in the cellar, either way you won't regret this purchase.

"The 2016 La Massa is a terrific blend of 65% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon available at an accessible price. Alicante Bouschet was used in the blend until last year but has now been removed. The results are surprisingly complex and profound, although the wine's best asset is the fresh and straightforward approach it makes, especially on the palate. That inner depth will give this wine some proper aging potential I should expect. This vintage shows lots of tension and dimension. The warm 2015 vintage shows sunny softness, but 2016 has more overall freshness."

"This shows some really impressive, herbal complexity, spanning a whole spectrum of rosemary and pine needles, before tile, crushed stones, blackcurrants and bay leaves enter the picture. The polish to the firm yet generous tannins captivates, as does the precision to the acidity and long finish."

"The 2016 La Massa is a gorgeous entry-label wine from La Massa and proprietor Giampaolo Motta. Grilled herb, leather, menthol, plum and blueberry notes literally explode from the glass as this extroverted wine shows off its flamboyant personality. The 2016 offers superb aromatic intensity, vibrant fruit and exceptional balance. In today's world, La Massa is also an exceptional value Don't miss it!"
