Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

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. (Monica Larner)

This is a focused red for the vintage with blueberry, mineral and slate aromas and flavors. Medium body, firm tannins and a focused finish. Very fine and polished. A blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Better in 2018.

The 2013 Giorgio Primo is dark, powerful and inviting. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice and a touch of French oak make a strong first impression as the 2013 shows off its distinctive personality. Deceptively medium in body, the 2013 possesses notable intensity and overall structure. Black cherry, plum, smoke, lavender and graphite infuse the authoritative finish. The 2013 is a terrific Giorgio Primo.
