Primofiore, the under-the-radar gem of the Quintarelli portfolio, has been a favorite for many years, and the 2020 edition does a fantastic job of holding onto that title. A bouquet that mixes zests of citrus, crushed raspberries, peppery florals and ginger sets the stage. This is soft-textured, open-knit and supple, yet spicy as well, with gobs of tart wild berry fruit perfectly offset by a bump of zesty acidity. The 2020 even features a bit of crunchy tannin that adds a tactile feel to the finish, as sweet herbs mingle with hints of clove; yet the end note here is how remarkably refreshed it leaves the palate. Primofiore is a blend of 50% Corvina and Corvinone to 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. This is the Quintarelli experience as a fraction of the price.

Winemaker Notes

A beautiful red wine from the famed Quintarelli estate that's made from the known trio of grapes: Corvina, Rodinella, and Molinara. "Primofiore" means "first flowering". This is made from the first round of grape harvesting from the vines used for the Cà del Merlo. This is meant to be consumed young and boasts aromas of Gaeta olives, cherries, spice and vanilla.
