The 2008 Giorgio Primo is all class and elegance. It shows surprising richness for the vintage with a level of detail, clarity and polish that are first-rate. Minerals, crushed flowers, cassis and sweet grilled herbs add complexity on the long, focused finish. This is a fabulous effort from proprietor Giampaolo Motta. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.
The 2006 Giorgio Primo is a totally different animal. It is a powerful, rich and intense wine loaded with dark fruit, earthiness, tobacco, tar and smoke, all of which come to life on a structured frame. Despite its size, the wine reveals tons of clarity and precision, all it needs is a few years to come together. In 2006 Giorgio Primo is 30% Sangiovese, 30% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot. Anticipated maturity: 2011ndash;2021.
Dark and brooding, with intense aromas of lead pencil, blackberry, black cherry and licorice. Full-bodied, with velvety, polished tannins, followed by vanilla, berry and currant on the finish. Powerful and complex. Built like a brick house. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best after 2013.
Giorgio Primo is among the best blended red wines from central Italy. Itrsquo;s a super Tuscan expression of Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet and Petit Verdot that delivers layer after layer of impressive richness, elegance and persistency. The aromas recall blackberry, ripe cherry, leather, tobacco, chocolate and espresso and thanks to the extraordinary quality of the mouthfeel, these flavors last seemingly forever on the palate.
Dark and powerful with intense aromas of tar, berry and raisins. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and big, velvety tannins. Full-throttle. Huge wine. What this lacks in finesse it gives in power. Best ever from here. Best after 2008.
