This is the fourth release from Carlo Ferrini's relatively new project in Brunelloville. Monitoring the evolution of this tiny estate has been particularly exciting. This celebrated winemaker is known for bigger and bolder expressions of Sangiovese. The Giodo 2013 Brunello di Montalcino, however, reflects a more reflective and inward-looking approach. Compared to other Brunellos in its class, this wine manages a very steady and calmly forthcoming collection of aromatic attributes. Instead of individual aromas, the wine brings forth a spinning whirl wheel of integrated tones that all blend into one. The bouquet is broader, wider and more all-encompassing than you usually get with the slightly nervous and skittish Sangiovese grape. The mouthfeel offers a similar level of wholeness and oneness. Drinking range: 2020 - 2035 Rating: 95 Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate (www.robertparker.com)(Feb 2018)
Plenty of dried fruit with figs and mushroom undertones. Full body, silky tannins and a ripe fruit, lemon rind and spice aftertaste. Condenses down to a refined and beautiful finish. Vivid acidity. Drink in 2021. Drinking range: 2021 - Rating: 96-96 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Nov 2017)
Podere Giodo di Carlo Ferrini
Famed oenologist Carlo Ferrini who's stellar career has seen him consulting at some of the greatest estates in Italy has finally put down some roots of his own. Putting his full effort and expertise, his heart and soul - into his own winery in Montalcino. Named after his parents 'Giovanna and Donatello' - Giodo is small, just 3.5 Hectares - but perfectly formed.
Carlo spent many years looking for the best spot for his own venture. Just south of the town of Montalcino he found Giodo. South-east facing, gentle slopes, perfectly exposed to the morning and early afternoon sun, where through rigorous selection he has planted 15 different clones of Sangiovese, all selected for their quality of fruit and their low yields. All perfectly suited to this ideal site.
With limited production and incredible provenance, it is no surprise that these wines are in huge demand and heavily oversubscribed.
We are delighted to be the UK's importer for this very special estate - not just because of our respect for the pedigree of Carlo Ferrini - but because they are fantastic wines.
The maestro has finally put his name on the bottle and these wines are full of class and pedigree.
