2018 Podere Giodo di Carlo Ferrini

Grapes Sangiovese
Colour Red
Origin Italy, Tuscany
ABV 13.5%

The grapes for this wine come from the fifth plot that the Ferinnis have bought here and so they have decided to now label it as 'La Quinta' (The Fifth). This is another extraordinary expression of Montalcino Sangiovese. In fact it is Brunello in all but name. There is brightness and energy here that is so engaging. Elegance and grace are trademarks of the Ferrini wines and they are all over this impressive wine. And there is a satisfying plush middle too. Well-balanced and dangerously inviting. This brilliant wine is brimming with understated sophistication. L&S (May 2020)

Exhibits a strong Sangiovese character, with cherry, earth, iron and leather aromas and flavors. Solidly built and nicely balanced, leaving an aftertaste of savory cherry, iron and tobacco accents. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2028 Drinking range: 2020 - 2028 Rating: 93 Bruce Sanderson, The Wine Spectator (Jun 2020)

The 2018 Giodo La Quinta shows depths of dark red fruits on the nose, as black cherry evolves into raspberry and, finally, strawberry, offset by notes of dusty rose, leather and cedar shavings. On the palate, silky textures flood the senses with a sweet and savory expression, further accentuated by salty minerals and vibrant acids, as pretty inner florals amass toward the close. The finish is long and perfumed. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024 Rating: 90 Eric Guido, (Jun 2020)

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.
