La Massa is right in the heart of Chianti Classico. Because of of the densely planted and wide range of orientations and soil types, La Massa has great complexity, beautiful harmony, super-ripe tannins.
Blend: 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2009 La Massa flows from the glass with layers of freshly cut flowers, dark red berries and subtle French oak. This radiant red from Chianti Classico’s famed Conca d’Oro impresses for its open personality and inner palate juiciness. This is a striking wine from La Massa and proprietor Giampaolo Motta. In 2009 Motta opted for relatively short fermentations of 12-15 days for his Sangiovese. The blend was 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019.
