Only the healthiest, absolutely perfect clusters of Sangiovese are destined for Giodo's Brunello di Montalcino. The wine's maturation-a full two and a half years-takes place in 700-litre French oak casks, followed by a further 18 months in the bottle, a period of time that is essential for producing a Giodo Brunello di Montalcino of such elegance, balance, and depth. Tasting it reveals a wine of great breed-complex, deep, intriguing, intense, and velvety, not opulent or excessive, but with extraordinary length.

00 Points! This is a splendid Brunello, showing extraordinary purity of sangiovese character. Cherry and floral aromas and flavors. Full-bodied with incredibly integrated tannins that seem like they are not there. But they are and are comprehensive on the palate. Great depth and agility. Just floats on the palate. Magic carpet. Drinkable, to enjoy the magic, but needs three or four years to come around.

The Giodo 2015 Brunello di Montalcino is a real stunner with a tight, finely knit texture that transcends and ultimately unites both the bouquet and the mouthfeel, putting them on an even playing field. This gives the wine a broad sense of unity and wholeness that is the key to withstanding the aging process one would expect to submit this bottle to. At this young stage, Giodo's Brunello reveals blue flowers, wild berry, camphor ash and delicate spice. This wine shows a compressed sense of intensity that expands quickly after you lift the proverbial lid off the box. As it breathes in air and takes on more volume, it also leaves a deeper impression on your nose and palate. It closes with a simple note of sweet cherry that makes for a perfect postscript. - Monica Larner

Cherry, strawberry, tobacco and iron flavors are gently shaded by new oak, imparting vanilla and toasty spice accents. Elegant overall, with bright acidity and refined tannins. Best from 2023 through 2038. 835 cases made, 300 cases imported.
