TOSCANA ROSSO IGT
2016 Podere Giodo di Carlo Ferrini
Nicely scented cherry, mint, earth, damson and touch of tobacco. Lovely glossy mouthfeel, really fine rich tannins, great acid backbone, lots of red fruits, then mocha, tobacco and earth. Drinking range: 2019 - 2030 L&S (Apr 2018)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Bright healthy red. A suggestion of forest floor on the nose. Round tannins and rather more sumptuous than the 2015. Great energy; great for current drinking! Really excellent; quite as good as some of the Brunellos. GV relative to the Brunello. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2020)
Crushed berries, orange peel and black cherries. So aromatic. Full-bodied, tight and reserved with tight and chewy tannins, which are so fine and polished. Love the energy in the fruit and acidity. Just a hint of bitterness. So good to drink now, but will age beautifully. Rating: 96 James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com(Sep 2018)
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 5.5 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.
