Palate Profile

A blend of 50 percent Merlot, 45 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 5 percent Petit Verdot. Years of study of the land and the vines have allowed Giampaolo Motta to identify the best Terroir to produce Giorgio Primo, the winery’s flagship wine. The grapes are hand-picked in small boxes and carefully inspected at the sorting table. The grapes are fermented and aged separately in 50 percent new French barriques for 16 months. After final selection and blending, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration.

Critic Awards

The consistency and depth of this wine is just incredible. Like the Carla 6, the 2016 Giorgio Primo shows an inky dark color, almost totally black, with penetrating fruit and long waves of rich fruit flavor throughout.

Flat out stunning. It is also a rare Giorgio Primo in which Merlot takes the leading role, the last being 2007. A rush of blackberry jam, graphite, lavender, spice and menthol build as the 2016 shows off its potent, beautifully layered personality. It is an absolutely unforgettable wine.

A dense and rich red with blackcurrants, berries and chocolate, as well as undertones of fresh porcini mushrooms and wet earth, on both the nose and the palate. Full and flavorful. Chewy tannins.
