About the Winery:
Giodo is made by esteemed consulting eonologist Carlo Ferrini (of Casanova di Neri and Castello di Brolio fame) from a tiny vineyard (about 1.5 hectares) that produces just 3,000 bottles (or 250 cases). Ferrini's fame is well-deserved: he was awarded "The Winemaker of the year" twice by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, and has authored many 100-point Brunelli, too. Wine Spectator recently called him "one of Tuscany's great winemakers." He began producing Giodo in 2009.

Ratings & Reviews

96 Points - James Suckling:
"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." (February 15th, 2016)

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"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. It does, however, need a few moments to find balance. In the mouth, the wine is edgy and sharp with some sour cherry and cranberry. I know that winemaker Ferrini says he prefers this vintage to his 2010 Brunello. Both wines are beautiful, but I give the edge to 2010. This expression feels linear, tight and requires a few extra years of bottle aging to flesh out." - Monica Larner (Mar 2016)
