GIUSEPPE QUINTARELLI ‘Primofiore’ 2009


The 2009 ‘Primofiore’ (meaning “first press) is composed of Corvina, Corvinone, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc. Each grape in the blend adds it own distinct character. The Corvina and Cabernet Franc seem to dominate the aromas and flavors with notes of sweet raisins, wild berries, pepper, tobacco, smoke, spices and herbs, while the Corvinone adds wonderful vibrant acidity and the Cabernet Sauvignon contributes to the structure and complexity. This is a fantastic wine from Quintarelli that can be approached early on given some air contact, however it will also age gracefully. (Best 2014-2029) - December, 2013 (JD)
