Hints of vanilla, caramel and Bourbon mark this well-oaked red.
Bright black cherry and plum flavors form the core, showing concentration and a grainy texture. Still compact and monolithic, yet
long. Needs time to integrate. Sangiovese. Best from 2016 through 2013 — B.S.

This red shows pretty blueberries, lightly toasted oak and meat. Full body with soft and round tannins and a fruity, blueberry finish.
A new pure Sangiovese from Giampaolo Motta of La Masa. Stylish. And in a Burgundy bottle. Try this in three or four years to soften.

Carla (the name of Giampaolo’s daughter) comes from the vineyard estate number 6.
