PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEWS: This is the personal endeavor of Carlo Ferrini, arguably the most famous Italian enologist today. He has spent the last 30 years establishing his reputation as one of the greatest winemakers/consultants in Italy and for that matter the world. He is the man behind many famous Italian wines, including the 100 point Casanova di Neri 2006 Cerretalto Brunello di Montalcino, MAZZEI, Petrolo, Talenti, Tenuta Monteti, and others. 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. Giodo’s first vintage was 2009, and the 2010 vintage was awarded with 100 points by James Suckling and 98 points by Robert Parker. In 2008, Carlo was named “Winemaker of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
96 points, James Suckling "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. So good to drink now, but will age beautifully." (911/18)
91 points, Wine Advocate "The 2016 Giodo is an IGT Toscana expression of 100% Sangiovese. The wine almost resembles a Rosso di Montalcino in form and function, although it does not carry that appellation name. In truth, it is more sophisticated than your average Rosso. Giodo pours from the bottle with dark ruby intensity and ripe aromas of cherry, blackberry and dried raspberry. Lighter notes of spice, tobacco and toasted nut fill in the rear. However, the wine is understated, fundamentally accessible and genuine. This is what makes it such an excellent pairing partner to your favorite pasta recipe." 2/28/18
