PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Carlo Ferrini is one of the most prolific winemakers in Tuscany, if not the world. He is a Sangiovese master whose wines are widely considered to be the purest, most exquisite expressions of the varietal on the market today.


The preeminent consulting winemaker in all of Tuscany, Ferrini espouses the belief that great wines are made in the vineyard. Many winemakers talk this game, but Carlo Ferrini walks the walk, as evidenced by the meticulous care he lavishes on all of his vines and the spectacular, terroir-driven quality of his cuvées.

After establishing his reputation working with the Consorzio of Chianti Classico, Ferrini began working as a consulting enologist/winemaker for several blue-chip Tuscan estates. Casanova di Neri in Brunello was the jewel in this assortment of properties, and in a very short time, Mr. Ferrini elevated the winemaking at the estate to the top of the charts within the appellation of Montalcino. Following several 96-100 point reviews on the property's reserve bottling, Ferrini was named "Winemaker of the Year" by Wine Enthusiast Magazine in 2008. Success has not slowed him down, as Ferrini continues to receive stellar accolades for his consulting work throughout Tuscany as well as his own property, the Giodo Estate.

The tiny Podere Giodo is a perfectly situated estate that Carlo calls his own but is small enough not to cause ripples within his small portfolio of consulting projects. According to the regulations of the Consorzio for Brunello di Montalcino, Podere Giodo is only allowed to bottle 250 cases of Brunello di Montalcino; anything else over and above has to be declassified and bottled as Toscana Rosso IGT.

The 2019 Giodo "La Quinta", crafted from 100% Sangiovese is quintessential Carlo Ferrini in that it deftly balances power and elegance. Aromas of brambly red fruits give way to a medium-to-full-bodied palate of black cherries, black raspberries, brambly earth, tobacco, leather, and savory herbs. It is incredibly well-structured, with moderate acidity and pliant tannins.

94 points, James Suckling
"This is rich and perfumed on the nose with sweet-berry, rose-hip, and sandalwood character. Full-bodied with a round, juicy palate of lots of ripe-berry and cedar undertones. Succulent and tangy at the end. Very enticing now. but will be even better in 2023." (8/4/21)
