This wine blew my mind. The 2015 Giorgio Primo is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. I'm told that the percentage of Merlot will increase in 2016 (to a majority role) but will diminish by a large margin in 2017 because that hot vintage was so difficult on early-ripening varieties. The bouquet is nothing short of explosive, with inky black fruit followed by pencil shaving, chalkboard, wet river stone and all the other beautiful mineral notes that I so closely associate with Panzano in Chianti. Giorgio Primo is a baritone Tuscan red with spectacular depth and range to its inner voice. It sings loud and long, and in perfect melody too. It is a real beauty. (ML)
The 2015 Giorgio Primo is polished, nuanced and silky, with tremendous freshness for the year. A move towards picking earlier results in a powerful, explosive wine of real character and pedigree. The 2015 is vibrant and exceptionally beautiful. It is also one of the very finest wines I have ever tasted here. The blend is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. (AG)
A red with beautiful depth of fruit and texture that shows blackcurrants, blueberries and cassis bush as well as just a hint of sweet tobacco and walnuts. Full-bodied, linear and tight, displaying a plush tannin texture yet with agility and length. A wine in balance and focus. Better in 2021.
Restrained, revealing black currant, cedar, tobacco, leather and spice flavors, this red combines power and elegance. The tannins are still a bit stiff, but this shows intensity and length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2021 through 2033. (BS)
