Classy and inviting notes of suave blackberries with soft vanilla accents. Smooth body with well integrated tannins, fresh fruity finish of blueberries.

Let this decant for about 45 minutes while prepping dinner. Pours a bright purplish red color with dark pink hues around the edges. I gave a whiff upon opening and it was quiet, but after 45 minutes, the aromas are quite prevalent. Ample amounts of red cherries, raspberries, tobacco and garden herbs. Starts off with the cherry and raspberries hitting the palate first. In the middle there are undertones of thyme and sage along with some hints of tobacco. Finishes strong with a nice blend of cherries and herbs. This is a nice medium bodied wine that could have used a tad more acidity, but it is not flabby by any means. Leaves a nice moderately long lingering taste on the palate.

The 2011 La Massa is 60% Sangiovese with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante. The wine produces beautiful intensity and purity of fruit with dark notes of blackberry, leather and moist chewing tobacco. It glides over the palate with enormous richness and fleshy density. Anticipated maturity: 2014–2022.

Rich and harmonious, this offers black cherry, chocolate, spice and tobacco aromas and flavors. Lively and firmly structured, with a lingering aftertaste of fruit and spice. Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante Bouschet. Best from 2015 through 2023.

Deep ruby. Very ripe aromas of blackberry, sweet spices and vanilla, with a suggestion of roasted fruits. At once sweet and vinous, with juicy acidity lifting the flavors of blackcurrant, licorice and minerals. Finishes long, ripe and soft, with a note of licorice and considerable fleshiness. Those who appreciate soft, ripe wines will love this; I’d drink it over the next five or six years.

The 2008 La Massa is a decidedly restrained wine for this house. Dark fruit, minerals and a variety of flowers are layered into an exquisite frame of impeccable elegance and pedigree. The 2008 doesn’t look to be a long-term ager, but it should drink nicely over the next few years while the fruit retains its juiciness. Anticipated maturity: 2010–2016.

Full-bodied, with gorgeous aromas of crushed raspberry and cassis, fine tannins and an attractive finish. There’s very attractive balance to this. Best after 2010.

The 2007 La Massa reveals unusual harmony and grace. This expansive, generous La Massa offers plenty of perfumed red fruit, licorice, new leather and spices in a seamless, opulent style. The wine’s balance and sheer class are impeccable. In 2007 La Massa is 70% Sangiovese, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 12 months in oak, 10% new. La Massa remains one of the top relative values in Tuscany. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2017.
