Giodo Brunello di Montalcino 2011

James Suckling: 96pts

This aromas of this Brunello are fresh and fascinating with mushroom, chili pepper, black berry and plum. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a super length. This is a great bottle for the vintage. The private wine of famous winemaker Carlo Ferrini. Drink or hold. Feb 2016


International Wine Report: 92pts

The 2011 Giodo Brunello di Montalcino is a wonderful effort from one of Italy’s top enologists; Carlo Ferrini. As this Brunello slowly begins to take shape it releases aromas of blackberries and cherries which come together with spices, leather, licorice and an slight earthy character. Medium-bodied, refined and well structured with fine, silky tannins and a long lingering finish. A textbook Brunello, but allow this just a bit more bottle age for it to hit full stride. (Best 2017-2027) – Feb, 2016 (JD)

Wine Spectator: 90pts

Elegant, with vibrant acidity, featuring cherry, leather, tobacco, menthol and mineral flavors. Firms up as the tannins flex on the finish, which persists with iron and tea accents. Best from 2018 through 2028. 300 cases made. –BS, 2016
