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.
