Looking for wineries in the Chianti region Giampaolo helped his friend oenologist Carlo Ferrini. In 1991, Giampaolo Motta manages to buy a winery located near Rampolla. It was the perfect place: the vineyards are located in the heart of D'Oro at the optimum height of 350 m above sea level and had a southern exposure. But the beginning of the wine-making activity was not easy, as it was necessary to modernize and re-lay the winery vineyards. But all efforts were paid a great result: in just a few years of wine Fattoria la Massa came to be considered one of the best in the region.

It also allows an equal yield in the vineyard reduce the yield on one bush, which increases the quality of the wine. Giampaolo Motta believes that the yield per vine must not exceed 1.5 kg. In this regard, the company produces a year from 60 to 70 thousand. Bottles. In the production of wines Giampaolo Motta should be popular in Bordeaux tradition - first poured the first wine - Giorgio Primo, and then the second - La Massa. These wines differ only in the number of harvest per hectare, grape selection and duration of maturation in oak barrels.
