About the Wine 

Carlo Ferrini, arguably the most famous Italian enologist today, has spent the last 30 years establishing his reputation as one of the greatest winemakers/consultants in Italy, and for that matter the world. Podere Giodo is his lifes work. One year after his first vintage in 2009, Carlo received another 100 point wine, the 2010 Giodo Brunello. After years of building and improving the reputation of some of Italy's most established estates, Carlo Ferrini had finally built his own estate. This young Sangiovese would likely have been made into Brunello if the Consorzio for Brunello didn't limit Carlo's production. Don't miss this sensational Sangiovese from Italy's most established enologist.

Giodo encapsulates above all my own history with Sangiovese, my first great love. Its name is a tribute to my parents, Giovanna and Donatello, to whom I owe everything.” Carlo Ferrini, Winemaker

After graduation from the University of Florence Faculty of Agrarian Science, he began working for the Chianti Classico Consorzio, working up to the position of Technical Director in 1986. In 1992 he left the Consorzio and began a career as a freelance consultant and enogolist. He is the man behind many famous Italian wines, including the 100 point Casanova di Neri 2006 Cerretalto Brunello di Montalcino, MAZZEI, Petrolo, Talenti, Tenuta Monteti, and others. According to the regulations of the Consorzio for Brunello di Montalcino, Podere Giodo is only allowed to bottle 250 cases of Brunello di Montalcino; anything else over and above has to be declassified and bottled as Toscana Rosso IGT. Giodo’s first vintage was 2009, and the 2010 vintage was awarded 100 points by James Suckling and 98 points by Robert Parker. In 2000, Gambero Rosso named him “Enologist of the Year”.  In 2003, The Associazione Italiana Sommelier also named him “Enologist of the Year”, and in 2008, Carlo was named “Winemaker of the Year” by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

Sangiovese is used to produce this younger interpretation of Tuscany's famous variety. The wine matures for twelve months in 500- and 1,200-litre oak casks. This expression of Sangiovese comes from the fifth vineyard ever planted in Montalcino, hence its name – in Italian “La Quinta” means the fifth – is remarkably refined.

Aging: 12 months in oak barrels

Tasting Notes: 100% Sangiovese Grosso.  What comes through most here is the naked beauty of the fruit that shines with raspberry and summer cherry. It opens to blue lower aromas with crushed stone, white pepper and pretty Mediterranean nuances. 


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. Very polished tannins run the length of the palate. Drink or hold. ~94 James Suckling (v. 2018)

Exhibits a strong Sangiovese character, with cherry, earth, iron, and leather aromas and flavors. Solidly built and nicely balanced, leaving an aftertaste of savory cherry, iron, and tobacco accents. Sangiovese. Drink now through 2028. 835 cases made, 300 cases imported. ~93 Wine Spectator (v. 2018)
