Giodo Brunello di Montalcino 2017

8 units available online.
Product description

96 Points - James Suckling

A full-bodied Brunello with lots of plums and cherries, as well as orange-peel character. It’s creamy and round-textured. Soft and chewy tannins. Shows the warmth and ripeness of the 2017 vintage. 

93 Points - Decanter

Sangiovese maestro Carlo Ferrini prefers picking Sangiovese on the earlier side rather than letting it get overripe. In the challenging 2017 vintage, he harvested in the first week of September. It's a charming Brunello expressing the restrained exoticn character I believe to be this wine’s signature. Potpourri, blood orange and anise lace through fleshy persimmon, and there's just a flicker of toasty oak. Sandy tannins tickle rather than grate the generous palate. Lots of vibrant acidity too.

From Carlo Ferrini's beautiful Giodo estate, nestled into one of the most idyllic little vineyard nooks found anywhere in Montalcino, the 2017 Giodo is a fresh and accessible expressions of Sangiovese. What comes through most here is the naked beauty of the fruit that shines with raspberry and summer cherry. This wine would make an ideal partner to veal cutlets seasoned with bay leaf or thyme. It opens to blue flower aromas with crushed stone, white pepper and pretty Mediterranean nuances. This wine never reveals any hint of the 2017 heat, and this is surely due to the ideal and romantically hidden-from-view positioning of the Giodo vineyards.
