The 2009 Giorgio Primo emerges from the glass with scents of blackberry, spice, leather, licorice and camphor. All of the elements are woven together nicely in this supple, juicy wine. There is a centeredness and focus to the fruit that is highly appealing. Giorgio Primo is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. Proprietor Giampaolo Motta and consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt have achieved remarkable polish and elegance here. The only thing missing is an element of visceral thrill.
