“100 point Brunello • News flash!”

Load Up On The 2015 Giodo! We Just Received Word That The 2016 Is Unlikely To Hit The U.S. Market

By David Gettenberg

Extremely Limited • Only Tell Your Friends After You Purchase

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!

Enjoy!

“Great depth and agility.”

James Suckling • 100 / 100

"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. Magic carpet. Drinkable, to enjoy the magic, but needs three or four years to come around."

“A real stunner.”

Wine Advocate • 97+ / 100

"The Giodo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a real stunner with a tight, finely knit texture that transcends and ultimately unites both the bouquet and the mouthfeel, putting them on an even playing field. This gives the wine a broad sense of unity and wholeness that is the key to withstanding the aging process one would expect to submit this bottle to. At this young stage, Giodo's Brunello reveals blue flowers, wild berry, camphor ash and delicate spice. This wine shows a compressed sense of intensity that expands quickly after you lift the proverbial lid off the box. As it breathes in air and takes on more volume, it also leaves a deeper impression on your nose and palate. It closes with a simple note of sweet cherry that makes for a perfect postscript. "
