100 Points James Suckling ... Seamless is a great way to describe this red wine with intense aromas of plums, cherries, walnut and sandalwood. Some lightly toasted oak, roses and lavender as well. Really aromatic. The palate is full and extremely polished with super fine tannins that go on for minutes and spread across your palate. A great wine, following the perfect, 100-point 2015. Better to start drinking this after 2023.
94 Points Decanter ... Evocatively scented, Giodo’s vanilla and cedary forest aromas gradually surrender to exotic flowers and orange oil. The palate is subtle in its concentration, revealing cocoa-dusted crunchy red berries enveloped in silky, supple tannins. It finishes vivacious and sappy with scintillating freshness. The polish and sophistication speak to someone who has honed his skills. Indeed, owner Carlo Ferrini is one of Tuscany’s most prominent consultants and has had over 35 years’ experience working with Sangiovese. He still lends his expertise at Montalcino’s Talenti and Castello Romitorio estates.
