We are taking in as much of the 2015 Giodo Brunello as we can; the importer just revealed it is unlikely they will be bringing in the 2016, which makes this 2015 quite rare!
Giodo Brunello quietly arrived on the scene six years ago. Shortly thereafter, Wine Spectator featured Carlo Ferrini, Giodo's owner, as "one of Montalcino's great winemakers" and "one of Montalcino's best-kept secrets."
The 2015 Tuscan vintage is a "historical year for Brunello di Montalcino that nobody should miss." James Suckling"
This is a splendid Brunello, showing extraordinary purity of Sangiovese character. Cherry and floral aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with incredibly integrated tannins that seem like they are not there. But they are and are comprehensive on the palate. Great depth and agility. Just floats on the palate." James Suckling
The Giodo vineyards are intentionally kept discrete. 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 consulting for clients Ricasoli and Telenti), Carlo keeps his vineyard location hidden as not to upstage his high-profile clients. With his multiple 100 point and 98+ point scores over the past few years, that's going to be difficult!
