93 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "The 2016 La Massa is a terrific blend of 65% Sangiovese, 25% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon available at an accessible price. Alicante Bouschet was used in the blend until last year but has now been removed. The results are surprisingly complex and profound, although the wine's best asset is the fresh and straightforward approach it makes, especially on the palate. That inner depth will give this wine some proper aging potential I should expect. This vintage shows lots of tension and dimension. The warm 2015 vintage shows sunny softness, but 2016 has more overall freshness. Drink: 2018-2028. (Oct 2018)"

93 points James Suckling: "This shows some really impressive, herbal complexity, spanning a whole spectrum of rosemary and pine needles, before tile, crushed stones, blackcurrants and bay leaves enter the picture. The polish to the firm yet generous tannins captivates, as does the precision to the acidity and long finish. Drink in 2021. (9/11/18)"

92 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2016 La Massa is a gorgeous entry-label wine from La Massa and proprietor Giampaolo Motta. Grilled herb, leather, menthol, plum and blueberry notes literally explode from the glass as this extroverted wine shows off its flamboyant personality. The 2016 offers superb aromatic intensity, vibrant fruit and exceptional balance. In today's world, La Massa is also an exceptional value Don't miss it! Drink: 2019-2026. (Feb 2019)"
