2015

GIODO

Toscana

Montalcino

Tuscany, Italy

[75 cases imported!]

Varietal(s):
100% Sangiovese

Tasting Notes:

2012 and 2015 are stunning Tuscan vintages. The 2015 Toscana (a.k.a. "Baby Brunello") sees less time in wood and bottle before release than the Brunellos. Therefore, you get to preview the marvel of the 2015 vintage early while allowing your 2012 Brunellos to age just a bit longer - if you choose. As for the Toscana, an intense burst of cherry and rose petal leap from the glass. A hint of earthiness leads a procession of spice, cocoa, dark berry and silky tannins. Balanced and structured, its brilliant fruit offers an amazing experience for early consumption. You can enjoy it now while you wait for its big brother Brunello. "Simply put, Giodo wines are just really good juice from a guy who knows how to make really great wine." Anne Press, EWM Sommelier

GIODO, Brunello di Montalcino
'Brunello's Best Kept Secret' Wine Spectator

— EXTREMELY LIMITED —

($69.95 per bottle / $839.40 per case) A mere 75 cases of Giodo Toscana are imported into the United States! That's a scant 900 bottles! And, what a shame when we explain further:
    Giodo's Montalcino reds quietly arrived on the scene three years ago. Recently, Wine Spectator called owner Carlo Ferrini, "one of Montalcino's great winemakers," and literally "one of Montalicino's best kept secrets."
    The location of his vineyards are kept discrete intentionally. To get there, you need to travel up an unpaved forest road outside the medieval hamlet of Sant’Angelo. As the former winemaker of Casanova di Neri as well as clients Ricasoli and Telenti, he keeps his vineyard location hidden as not to upstage his high-profile clients. While nice in theory, the quality of his wines and press are placing him front and center of the Brunello world. Here is the highlight reel of his first three vintages:

SOLD OUT:
     • 2010 Giodo Brunello di Montalcino: 100 PTS and SOLD OUT.
     • 2011 Giodo Brunello di Montalcino: 97 PTS and SOLD OUT.

AVAILABLE and LIMITED:

    • 2012 Giodo Brunello di Montalcino. Historic vintage. Pre-sale arriving May 31, 2017. (ORDER HERE)

    • 2015 Giodo Toscana. "Baby Brunello." A peak into the marvel of 2015. Shipping now. (ORDER HERE)

    So why are we featuring both the 2012 Giodo Brunello and 2015 Giodo Toscana? For starters, the wines are sensational. Both 2012 and 2015 are stunning Tuscan vintages. The 2015 Toscana (a.k.a. "Baby Brunello") is the same exact fruit as the Brunello but sees less time in wood and bottle before release. Therefore, you get a glimpse of what the 2015 Brunellos will taste like in your 2015 Toscana. You also get to pre-order the stunning 2012 Brunello, which you can enjoy now or lay down just a bit longer (if you can resist!).
    The last time we saw a vintage like these was the historic 1997 Tuscan vintage. Those wines are long gone but still talked about today. We will be doing the same with the 2012 and 2015 vintages. Order Here ».
