General Information: Giorgio Primo 2009 is the result of a careful selection of the best grapes in the vineyards of La Massa and then a rigorous selection of bunches and the individual berries before vinification. We can consider the year 2009 one of the best for the climatic characteristics and the optimum level of ripeness of the grapes. The successive drawing off directly from the vats to new French Oak barriques is followed by an 18 month maturation period during which continual sensory tastings and analysis are performed to evaluate the evolution of the wines. The entire production was bottled in one session in the beginning on June 2011. The 2009 vintage produced around 16,000 bottles of 750 ml.
