TOSCANA ROSSO IGT
2015 Podere Giodo di Carlo Ferrini
Bright red fruits, cherries, raspberries and strawberries, nicely fragrant, ripe and fresh. Palate has weight of fruit, ripe rich tannins, saturated red fruits, raspberry, cherry with good sappy acidity, some complex wood spice notes, just a touch of mint and liquorice. Pretty, polished and long. L&S (Apr 2017)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
This is a linear and dense red with blackberry, black cherry and floral aromas and flavors. Full body, tight and powerful. This is so focused and long. I love the fresh acidity and solid, fruit-coated tannins. A new wine from Carlo Ferrini's tiny Brunello estate. Will drink better in 2020. Rating: 97 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Aug 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.
