Podere Giodo 2018 Brunello di Montalcino


"This wine was tasted in a preview capacity as it won't hit the market until the beginning of next year. Tasted at the Giodo winery in one of the most remote and beautiful spots in the appellation surrounded by forests and wide open panoramas, the 2018 Brunello di Montalcino gives us a promising taste of what we can expect from this warm vintage. The wine delivers ripe, but delicate aromas of cassis and dark cherry with shades of lilac, violet and crushed limestone The tannins are present and well managed. Carlo Ferrini's Brunello promises a long aging trajectory" Robert Parker 97 Points

"The nose brings an umami sanguinity, with notes of tar, petrol and soil, but undertones of black cherries and blackberries make those aromas invigorating rather than harsh. The fruit ripens on the palate, but a slow-developing, spiced earthiness works with deliberate tannins and latent acid to maintain propriety." Wine Enthusiast 97 Points

"Black-cherry, violet, lavender and orange peel aromas follow through to a medium to full body with ultra fine tannins that run the length of the wine. Such focus and brightness. Agile and weightless at the end. Not the biggest Giodo, but pretty and precise." James Suckling 96 Points

One of Italy's most famous winemakers, Carlo Ferrini has carved out a vineyard for his own label, Giodo as of 2002. After years crafting some of the most award-winning wines in Tuscany as well as being named "Winemaker of the Year - 2008" by Wine Enthusiast, he wanted something he could call his own. Handing on the secrets of winegrowing from generation to generation is one of the dreams of every producer. Carlo Ferrini is no exception, and the heir of his passion is his nearly 30-year-old daughter Bianca. With a past that includes water polo and professional training in agricultural science in Italy and marketing in the United States, Bianca currently addresses the full scope of the daily challenges facing the Giodo wines.
