Giodo is the personal project of renowned wine consultant Carlo Ferrini (who has worked wonders at San Leonardo), and the estate comprises just with just six hectares outside of Castelnuovo dell’Abate, one of Montalcino’s most iconic terroirs shared with the likes of Mastrojanni & Podere le Ripi. These wines have been enjoying their deserved time in the lime light, having received a perfect score from James Suckling in 2020.

The 2019 is one of the estate's greatest success to date, leaving Suckling to muse "What a wine" in his 99pt review. Bravo!

We are increasingly of the opinion that Montalcino remains the last classic fine wine region to offer real value – and this, one of the best editions from one its greatest winemakers, is a brilliant example that should be in every cellar.

What the critics say:

99/100James Suckling

"Aromas of cedar, earth, tree bark, fruit tea, black tea and cherries. Then it turns to fresh and dried flowers. Medium to full body as it grows on the palate with superb fine tannins that run the length of the wine. It’s structured and powerful with great length. The acid, tannin balance is incredible. Very clear and transparent. What a wine. Drinkable but better in three or four years."

98+/100Monica Larner, Wine Advocate

"When I tasted this wine with its maker, the celebrated enologist Carlo Ferrini, he told me that he put every last drop of love into the 2019 vintage. He believes it is the best wine he has made thus far at his relatively new Giodo project that started in 2009. Indeed, I would rank the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino as high as or even better than the best vintages made at this boutique estate. In my mind, they are 2010, 2016 and now 2019. This wine comes from a three-hectare plot with 19-year-old vines that are cared for obsessively. This amphitheater-shaped parcel called La Poderina is nestled deep within the forest on a steep slope that overlooks Monte Amiata in the distance. The soils are white in color with lots of rocks. This is a wine of depth and dimension, with vibrant energy, elegant balsamic notes and sweetly ripened fruit. The medium fruit weight is balanced against the wine's acidity and fine tannins. It ends with floral notes of violet and iris."

OUR GROWERS

Podere Giodo

All firm favourites of Honest Grapes, it should come as no surprise then that we’ve been thrilled with to see Ferrini put his hat in the ring of Montalcino, nor that the quality is outstanding, especially as over the years he has worked for half a dozen different growers in the region.
