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.
Winespectator / James Suckling (95)
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.
