TASTING NOTES

"Dark and brooding, with intense aromas of lead pencil, blackberry, black cherry and licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety, polished tannins, followed by vanilla, berry and currant on the finish. Powerful and complex. Built like a brick house. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best after 2013. 1,750 cases made." Wine Spectator

"The 2007 Giorgio Primo is an explosive wine bursting with dark red fruit. It is sumptuous and beautifully balanced from start to finish. Sweet herbs, flowers and licorice add complexity on the subtle, highly nuanced finish. I especially like the way the wine retains its freshness and vibrancy throughout. This is another terrific wine from La Massa. The 2007 was a transitional vintage for La Massa. The Cabernet and Merlot were vinified with an eye towards being blended with Sangiovese but during the maturation of the wines Motta decided to eliminate Sangiovese entirely from the blend to focus on Bordeaux varieties. In 2007 the blend was 60% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

"Saturated deep ruby. Sexy aromas of blackcurrant, milk chocolate, herbs and coffee. Fat, full and broad, but with better cut and grip than the La Massa thanks to higher acidity. Plenty of depth to its sweet plum, blackberry and graphite flavors. Finishes impressively long and sweet, with solid tannic grip and captivating hints of mocha and minerals. This should age well. Talented French winemaker Stephane Derenoncourt consults here. For years, this was a Chianti Classico, but it's now a Super-Tuscan containing large percentages of international varieties. "I just couldn't sell it as a Chianti Classico, and I wasn't impressed with how the sangiovese aged," owner Giampaolo Motta told me recently." Ian D'Agata, Vinous.com
