La Massa is at the bottom of a long, steep drive where a beautiful villa and farm buildings stand in a clump of pine and cypress trees. Here you are, right in the heart of Chianti Classico, in an area known as the Conca d’Or or Golden Basin where four south-facing spurs are occupied by four of Chianti’s top producers.
Driving up, down and across the property you pass plots of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet densely planted on a wide range of orientations and soil types. This is the crucial factor in lending great complexity to Giampaolo Motta’s wines while late harvesting gives them beautiful harmony and super-ripe tannins. As for Giampaolo, he is a young, well-travelled Neapolitan. Taking his team on a fact-finding mission to Château Margaux is just on example of the fresh approach he brings to Chianti.
