100 / 100

"This is a phenomenal Brunello from the personal vineyard of famous consulting enologist Carlo Ferrini. It shows such a richness and depth that I have seldom found in pure sangiovese. Full-bodied, yet balanced and dense, it sho ... Read More »

THE REVIEW

It was just a matter of time before winemaker Carlo Ferrini of Casanova di Neri crafted his own 100 point Brunello!
    Highly collectible, the 2010 Giodo Brunello is one of the most prized wines of Montalcino. With a mere 250 case production, it is a world-class Brunello that "encapsulates what makes 2010 Brunellos so wonderful to taste and drink." 100 points, James Suckling
    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 structure for aging, its brilliant fruit offers an amazing experience for early consumption. You can enjoy it now, but certainly feel comfortable laying it down for years.
    The last time we saw a vintage like this was the historic 1997 Tuscan vintage. Those wines are long gone but still talked about today. We will be doing the same with the 2010 vintage as it is arguably better.
    So convinced about this wine's stunning qualities, we'd be remiss if we also didn't highlight Giodo's beautiful "Toscana." This Sangiovese red is made from the same fruit and with the same meticulous skill as the 100 point Giodo Brunello, except the wine sees a bit less time in oak before release. It is the perfect way to take advantage of a classic vintage and a highly collectible wine. The 2010 Giodo Toscana is every bit a "Baby Brunello," but all grown up.
    While supplies last, this is an extremely limited offering of the 2010 Giodo Brunello. Here is your chance to enjoy some of Tuscany's most prized and limited wine. Salute! Read More »
