27 Giorgio Primo la Massa 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

#27 Wine Spectator Top 100 2009..."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. Poweful and complex. Built like a brick house. Merlot, Cabenert Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Best after 2013...97" WS 10/09. "The 2007 Giorgio Primo (from barrel) is 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot aged in 100% new oak with frequent batonnage. It is a big, rich wine loaded with vibrant dark fruit, violets, graphite and minerals, all of which come together in a richly-textured, sensual style. The wine possesses great balance and is very promising at this stage. This is a very Bordeaux-like Giorgio Primo...91-94" WA 09/09.

Offers blackberry, toasty oak and milk chocolate aromas. Full-bodied, soft and velvety, with a long, rich finish. Concentrated and pretty. Layered and serious. Best after 2011.

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.

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.

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.

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.
