"They are there, but not there"
"Full bodied with incredibly integrated tannins that seem like they are not there. But they are, and are comprehensive on the palate," said James Suckling of Giodo Brunello 2015, awarding it 100 points! Impressive indeed, but wait till you hear this - "Just floats on the palate. Magic carpet." THAT, is the ultimate experience.
Owner of Giodo, Carlo Ferrini, is one of Italy's most decorated winemakers who played an enormous role in Italy's wine scene for the last few decades. He was awarded "Winemaker of the Year" three times by Gambero Rosso, Wine Enthusiast and the Italian Sommelier Association!
Don't miss out on Giodo's other Tuscany wine. 94 Points Giodo Rosso La Quinta 2018 is all about amazing value and approachability! Refreshing and aromatic with less oak influence - it is a young and vibrant interpretation of Giodo Brunello. "A pretty red with density and richness, offering cherry and chocolate aromas and flavors, as well as hazelnuts. Yet, it’s tight and so fine and focused." - James Suckling
Second Love in Sicily
Luckily, Carlo Ferrini did not limit himself to the Tuscany region. He found his second love in Sicily. But it was a very specific kind of love: only for the 950m high-altitude Mount Etna and only for the grape Nerello Mascalese. These incredibly rich black volcanic soils imbue amazing minerality to the wines. The 95 points Alberelli wine is made from 80-100 years old vines. You will be amazed.
