2011 Giodo Brunello di Montalcino

Winery notes:

“The history of Giodo in Montalcino begins in 2002, when Carlo Ferrini, after years of research, finally identified his first hectare to purchase in the prestigious Brunello denomination; today, his winery, lying midway between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Sant’Antimo, relies on six hectares of vineyard. With respect to aspect, elevation, and soil types, the location is perfect for viticulture. A majestic row of cypresses beckons visitors to this near-hidden, magical spot, while the vines dedicated to Brunello di Montalcino and to IGT Toscana enjoy a breath-taking panoramic view out over the sinuous hills of Montalcino as far as the massif of Monte Amiata.”

Critical Acclaim:

“96 points.

“It was just a matter of time before winemaker Carlo Ferrini of Casanova di Neri crafted his own 100 point Brunello! This aromas of this Brunello are fresh and fascinating with mushroom, chili pepper, black berry and plum. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a super length. This is a great bottle for the vintage. The private wine of famous winemaker Carlo Ferrini. Drink or hold.” James Suckling

“94 points.

“Carlo Ferrini’s 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a deliciously lush and soft expression of Sangiovese that offers great aromatic depth, complexity and intrigue. The wine keeps you guessing and in my case it took me a little while to wrap my head around it. Dark cherry and blackberry are harmoniously integrated with spice, leather, mocha and tobacco.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“92 points.

“The 2011 Giodo Brunello di Montalcino is a wonderful effort from one of Italy’s top enologists; Carlo Ferrini. As this Brunello slowly begins to take shape it releases aromas of blackberries and cherries which come together with spices, leather, licorice and an slight earthy character. Medium-bodied, refined and well structured with fine, silky tannins and a long lingering finish. A textbook Brunello, but allow this just a bit more bottle age for it to hit full stride. (Best 2017-2027).” – International Wine Report
