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.

Here is some winery background from Vinous Media's Antonio Galloni:
"Carlo Ferrini, the renowned Italian winemaking consultant that worked with well-known Brunello estates in the past (Casanova di Neri, Castello Romitorio, Poggio Antico, Talenti) started his own project in Montalcino in 2002 when he found 2.5 hectares of land suitable to making great Sangiovese wines. Ferrini's first vintage was 2009, from which he made 3,000 bottles. Today the estate owns 5.5 hectares (2.5 hectares of Brunello and 3.5 of IGT Toscana Rosso, also planted to Sangiovese). The vines are located between 300 and 400 meters above sea level, essentially near the Lisini estate and in the Sesta area. He planted his vineyard with what he believes are the best Sangiovese clones he has worked with over the years (starting back with the Chianti Classico 2000 project)."
