The story of Giodo in Montalcino began in 2002, when Carlo Ferrini identified, after many years of research, a first plot of land to buy in the prized Brunello region. Positioned between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Sant’Antimo, the company currently covers 6 hectares of vineyards and is an ideal place for the cultivation of vines, thanks to its exposure, altitude and diversity of soils. An imposing avenue of cypress trees welcomes the visitor to this magical place. The rows of Sangiovese vines destined for the production of Brunello di Montalcino and IGT Toscana offer spectacular views of the rolling hills surrounding Montalcino, up to the majestic mass of Monte Amiata. To further enrich the suggestive landscape, there is an olive grove dedicated to the production of Tuscan IGP oil.
After the harvest, the ripest and healthiest bunches are selected, which are then fermented in stainless steel tanks with maceration on the skins for about twelve days. The wine ages for 12 months in French oak tonneaux and in large 25-hectolitre barrels. Before being marketed, it completes its refinement with a few months of rest in the bottle.
Ruby red colour. A bouquet characterized by light shades of violet, aromas of cherry, small red berries, ripe cherries, with hints of wild plants of the Mediterranean scrub and delicate spices. On the palate, it is agile and flowing, with a well-developed tannic texture, fruity aromas of great fragrance and finesse, which lead to a fresh, sapid finish with good persistence on the palate.
It goes well with red meat dishes, game and aged cheeses. Excellent with truffles and traditional Tuscan dishes.
