The Wine Advocate: 89 points
The 2009 Primofiore is a delightful wine that shows crisp lines and impressive focus. It is redolent of back fruit, cedar spice, root beer, dried rosemary and balsam herb. Dusty mineral notes bring up the rear. The wine is snappy and tonic with a very tight, fresh and expressive quality of fruit. Drink 2014-2018.
Vinous Review: 88 points
The 2009 Primofiore has a nice level of juiciness. Sweet tobacco, dried flowers, mint, leather and licorice meld together nicely in this attractive, medium-bodied red. The finish is long, juicy and beautifully expressive. Sweet tobacco, cedar, bell pepper and wild herbs all flesh out nicely. Primofiore is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon/Franc and 50% Corvina/Corvinone that spends two years in cask.
