Years of study of the land and a careful sensorial analysis of the grapes and wines have allowed us to identify the best possible plots for the production of Giorgio Primo, the company's flagship wine. Grapes are picked by hand and placed in boxes, then are selected on a first sorting table. After this, the grapes are assessed manually on a second table. The selected produce is transported on a trolley and loaded by gravity directly into the temperature- adjustable vinification vats. The techniques adopted allow fermentation without having to add yeast, and limit the use of sulphides. The kinetics of fermentation can be controlled for perfect polyphenol extraction. After drawing off the wine, the batches are "elevated" separately into oak barriques (80% new) for 18 months. While it is maturing, analysis and tastings are performed on a regular basis to check the wine's development.

This is a truly sumptuous wine that stands as a tall testament to the winemaking talents of Giampaolo Motta, his vision for interpreting this vintage and his specific vineyard site in Panzano in Chianti. This standout wine brings Fattoria la Massa to a new level of accomplishment and opens an exciting new chapter of possibility. The 2013 Giorgio Primo (50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot) is dark and impenetrable on first impact. The aromas accelerate slowly and grow evenly in power and intensity after a few quick swirls of the glass. The bouquet peels back with dark fruit aromas, baking spice and Mediterranean herb. The effect is seamless and smooth. A velvety texture is accented by full-bodied richness and just enough freshness to keep the palate energized. And, of course, this is just the beginning of a long cellar life. Drink Date: 2017-2035.

Mulberry and plum aromas and flavors are backed by earth, spice and tobacco notes in this dense red. Tails off a little on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2021. 1,400 cases made.
