JS 100
James Suckling
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 shows so much cherry, floral and minerally character. Citrus, too. It was aged 24 months in used 500-liter oak barrels.
RP 98
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Carlo Ferrini's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine that far exceeded my expectations. Actually, I'm not sure what I expected, but it wasn't this level of focus and clarity. The wine definitely reflects the philosophy of its creator (it is aged in 500-liter oak barrel for two years) and presents a modern and international style that will not appeal to Brunello purists. However, no one can deny this level of quality. The bouquet is redolent of dark cherry, black fruit, spice, leather and tobacco. The mouthfeel reflects the enduring power of the vintage thanks to integrated tannins, bright acidity and lingering fruit notes. The freshness of the fruit is intact and should serve the wine well in terms of its aging future.

Podere Giodo Carlo and Bianca Ferrini Winery Image
The history of Giodo in Montalcino begins in 2002, when Carlo Ferrini, after years of research, finally identified his first hectare to purchase in the prestigious Brunello denomination; today, his winery, lying midway between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Sant’Antimo, relies on six hectares of vineyard. With respect to aspect, elevation, and soil types, the location is perfect for viticulture. A majestic row of cypresses beckons visitors to this near-hidden, magical spot, while the vines dedicated to Brunello di Montalcino and to IGT Toscana enjoy a breath-taking panoramic view out over the sinuous hills of Montalcino as far as the massif of Monte Amiata. The final artistic touch is the picturesque grove of olive trees that yield the Giodo Toscano IGP olive oil.

Famous for its bold, layered and long-lived red, Brunello di Montalcino, the town of Montalcino is about 70 miles south of Florence, and has a warmer and drier climate than that of its neighbor, Chianti. The Sangiovese grape is king here, as it is in Chianti, but Montalcino has its own clone called Brunello.

The Brunello vineyards of Montalcino blanket the rolling hills surrounding the village and fan out at various elevations, creating the potential for Brunello wines expressing different styles. From the valleys, where deeper deposits of clay are found, come wines typically bolder, more concentrated and rich in opulent black fruit. The hillside vineyards produce wines more concentrated in red fruits and floral aromas; these sites reach up to over 1,600 feet and have shallow soils of rocks and shale.

Brunello di Montalcino by law must be aged a minimum of four years, including two years in barrel before realease and once released, typically needs more time in bottle for its drinking potential to be fully reached. The good news is that Montalcino makes a “baby brother” version. The wines called Rosso di Montalcino are often made from younger vines, aged for about a year before release, offer extraordinary values and are ready to drink young.
