Fattoria La Massa 2016
La Massa is situated in the hills of Panzano, in the prestigious ‘Conca d’Oro’ (Golden Basin) of the Chianti Classico zone, where the estate has produced wine since the fifteenth century.
93 Points, Wine Advocate
“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."
93 Points, James Suckling
“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."
