Tasting Notes

Two for the price of one! We've taken two of our perennial favorites in Italian reds and combined them into one remarkable value. La Massa is our best-selling Super Tuscan from each of the past five years, where the Neprica almost matches that mark with our clients coming back vintage after vintage. If you went to buy these elsewhere it'll set you back $30 or more, but we've curated a unique opportunity to secure both at half that price. By the pair or by the case, there are few opportunities to secure wines of this caliber for such a price.

    La Massa, Concentrated Sangiovese fruit with layers of subtle earth and mineral scents in a soft and forward body. Wonderful to drink now! Two Thumbs up ! Tormaresca,I just opened this for our staff tasting recently and this little "Puglia blend" stopped the show, with lots of oohs and ahhs from my coworkers. This wine has lots of bang for the buck. This wine is a blend of 40% Negroamaro, 30% Primitivo & 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, medium-bodied with dark fruit, good acidity and a really long finish. Two THUMBS up !!! Guido Really a GREAT pair to keep you warm on those cold winter nights!!!

    When we got the La Massa in earlier this year you could pick up a bottle for just under $20, and it was a steal then! Now you can get that great, Cabernet dominant Toscana paired with a great Puglia wine for under $15! The La Massa, which is full bodied with bold acidity rivaling the bold wood structure from time in new french oak, has notes of fresh raspberries and cherry skins are chased by freshly grated baking spice and purple flowers- a great Toscana to try if you love those bold California cabernets. The Neprica, a Southern Italy Red blend, is a medium bodied wine with lush fruit and bold character. It is easy, open and inviting. It is a blend of Negroamaro for classic, rustic flavors, Primitivo (Zinfandel) for rich, ripe fruits and Cabernet Sauvignon for a touch of structure and acidity. Both are flavorful and ready to enjoy any day of the week!

    What a steal two for the price of one, here are my reviews for both wines 2014 La Massa: You can really tell the breeding in this wine, the aromatics and flavors are so well defined and focused. The wine is a base of Sangiovese about 60% then Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante make of the rest. The nose says Tuscany, wisps of leather, hints of violet the a bit of wild cherry show off the Sangiovese then the plumy richness of the Cab and Merlot squeeze in. On the palate the wine shows its richly textured body, supple mouth-feel and great drinkability while still showing that central focus one expects in Tuscan wine. On the palate the complex blend of fruit and earth come together with porcini, leather and wild cherry dominating accented with lilac, rosemary and a bit of that Tuscan dust. Agile and focused this wine is ready to drink but will easily age another 5 years, try it with your favorite pasta… or like me it will be a Pork Tenderloin and roasted potatoes! 2014 Tormaresca Neprica: It is hard to believe that a wine at this price point can carry the quality level it does, but the Antinori family has centuries of experience to back them. This wine is a blend of NE (Negroamaro) PRI (Primitivo) and CA (Cabernet), hence the Neprica name. Negroamaro is Puglia's most important grape and provides the size and frame and structure of the wine, the Primitivo gives it a rich dose of fruit and the Cabernet adds backbone and complexity, all told for the price this wine can't be beat! The 2014 vinatge has a little more freshness than previous vintages, tasty!
    Drink from 2018 to 2021
