    Wow. The power and structure of this wine is just phenomenal. Sweet fruit aromas, with rich tannin and beautiful zippy acidity. Super Tuscans like this — 55% Cabernet, 40% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot — show all the best of California's rich fruit profile, Bordeaux's tannin structure, and Italy's vibrant acidity. We can drink this wine young, but should decant it. Instead, we really ought to be drinking this wine for the next 20 years. The problem is, it won't last long enough.

    Deep, rich and concentrated for days, La Massa's Primo is the ultimate expression of a classic Super Tuscan styled red. I have always loved the wines of La Massa, the basic is always a favorite weeknight wine, but the Giorgio Primo turns up the volume and adds layers of fruit and deep complex tones that must be tasted to be believed. Certainly destined for the cellar for a few years, this should evolve with the best of the them and at half the price of most other Super Tuscans of this caliber, this will deliver equal pleasures throughout its life.

    My colleague Mike Parres summed up the tasters initial response, “…a little bit of Tuscany in this glass…” Your first whiff immediately conjures up images of the Tuscan countryside. As Italy’s interpretation of Bordeaux, you have to give them credit for creating such a spectacular offering. Yet, the wine stands on its own as uniquely Italian. I think of Bordeaux as being defined by its tannic structure but the Italian iterations are defined by their brisk and lively acidity. Hailing from Panzano, one of Tuscany’s great wine villages, the Giorgio Primo bottling from La Massa is a wine to be reckoned with. I look forward to tasting this wine again 5 to 10 years from now.

    You will find a little bit of Tuscany in this glass that is ripe and fleshy with cocoa, spice, black fruit and density, full-bodied and broad on the palate with complex layers of earth and some soft tannin on the finish. This is a wine that is very user friendly now and has the aging potential over the next few years. This is the ideal match for red meats and roasted poultry or just a BIG glass all by itself after a long day from work.
