The Giorgio Primo of La Massa is one of Italy's most reliably excellent wines. However, this wine needs 5 to 7 years to really show its stuff. After the first 2 years you can find bottles in a "dumb" stage. Take the time to wait at least 5 years (or more!)before pulling these corks.

It Italy this is one of the most consistently highly rated wines - I think they are on their 8th consecutive Tre Bicchiere from the Gambero Rosso and has been Tre Stelle Blu from Veronelli for just as long.
