From the beautiful rolling hills of Panzano in Chianti, the 2015 La Massa shows a ripe and soft side of the vintage with warm notes of black cherry and blackberry. This is a velvety and richly textured blend of 60% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante Bouschet that displays beautiful concentration and color saturation. This is an upfront and immediate wine that offers loads of beautiful intensity. You absolutely can’t beat this unbelievable value from Tuscany.
The 2015 La Massa is pliant, deep and wonderfully expressive, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Black cherry, licorice, lavender, rose petal and spice give the 2015 an exotic feel that is impossible to miss. Ripeness is pushed to the edge in this creamy, voluptuous entry-level offering from La Massa. (AG) (1/2018)
