2011 La Massa Giorgio Primo


2012 La Massa IGT Toscana

Just arrived and a massive 93/100 from Parker. La Massa is right in the heart of Chianti Classico, in an area known as the Conca de Oro or Golden Basin where four south-facing spurs are occupied by four of Chiantis top producers. ""The spirited and opinionated Neapolitan Giampaolo Motta had a falling out with the Chianti Classico Consorzio years ago – hence the small picture of a barbecued Black Rooster on the black of the label. Even though he has some of the best vineyards in Panzano in Chianti, he chooses to bottles his wines as IGT Toscana instead. "the 2012 La Massa wraps clean around the palate, imparting sassy tones of Mexican spice, tobacco and dark berry fruit. The blend is 60% Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante. The wine shows luscious dark concentration with equal billing to both the dark fruity component of the wine and its spicy, oak-driven spice. There’s a firmness to the tannins that should soften with time." 93/100 Parker


2007 Tenuta dell'Ornellaia Masseto

SOLD AS 3 BOTTLE ORIGINAL WOOD CASE (equivalent to $600/bottle). ‘The estate’s 2007 Masseto is fabulous. Loads of black cherry, blackberry and cassis are intermingled with minerals, violets and French oak. This is an especially sensual Masseto that impresses for its clarity, intensity and length. The wine’s pedigree is impossible to miss, in fact in one of my blind tastings it was immediately identifiable; the class and sheer personality of Masseto came through in spades.’ Antonio Galloni - Wine Advocate May 2010 – 96 Points


2010 Le Pupille Saffredi

"The 2010 Saffredi (Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) delivers gorgeous intensity and broad aromas of black berry, leather, crushed granite and lingering smoke. It’s a masterpiece on all happy fronts. The textural elegance is superb. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025." 96/100 Parker


2009 Canalicchio di Sopra Brunello di Montalcino

With youth and history these wines are going from strength to strength and offer extremely good buying from Brunello. "Only a few brief moments into my winery visit with Francesco Ripaccioli, it was evident that I was looking the future of Brunello di Montalcino squarely in the eyes. This young man is the personification of a new generation of vintners and proprietors who will soon inherit this storied winemaking legacy. Francesco's confidence with languages, his clear understanding of his family's patrimony, and his deep commitment to the winemaking process makes him, like many others in his age group, an encouraging symbol of what will come."The 2009 Brunello di Montalcino is a standout expression with long and polished notes of dried fruit and tobacco presented in a smooth and seamless fashion. It shows good structure and balance but an even prettier nose with ethereal balsam herbs, tar, licorice and pressed violets that emerge as the wine evolves in the glass. The wine hints at a greater evolution to come. Drink: 2017-2022." 92/100 Parker


2012 Canalicchio di Sopra Rosso di Montalcino

The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino is representative of an estate that has always taken great care to safeguard this often overlooked relative of Brunello. This is a deep and nicely saturated Rosso with ripe notes of spice, dark cherry, blackberry and distant hints of smoked bacon that fill in the rear. It's relatively straightforward (it macerates on the skins for 15 days and later ages for 12 months in oak cask) with soft layers of fresh fruit. Drink: 2014-2018. Parkers Wine Advocate
