#6 James Suckling Top 100 Italian Wines of 2023
#33 James Suckling Top 100 Wines of 2023

Aromas of cedar, earth, tree bark, fruit tea, black tea and cherries. Then it turns to fresh and dried flowers. Medium to full body as it grows on the palate with superb fine tannins that run the length of the wine. It’s structured and powerful with great length. The acid, tannin balance is incredible. Very clear and transparent. What a wine. Drinkable but better in three or four years.-James Suckling

When I tasted this wine with its maker, the celebrated enologist Carlo Ferrini, he told me that he put every last drop of love into the 2019 vintage. He believes it is the best wine he has made thus far at his relatively new Giodo project that started in 2009. Indeed, I would rank the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino as high as or even better than the best vintages made at this boutique estate. In my mind, they are 2010, 2016 and now 2019. This wine comes from a three-hectare plot with 19-year-old vines that are cared for obsessively. This amphitheater-shaped parcel called La Poderina is nestled deep within the forest on a steep slope that overlooks Monte Amiata in the distance. The soils are white in color with lots of rocks. This is a wine of depth and dimension, with vibrant energy, elegant balsamic notes and sweetly ripened fruit. The medium fruit weight is balanced against the wine's acidity and fine tannins. It ends with floral notes of violet and iris.-Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

Made from 100% Sangiovese, the 2019 Brunello di Montalcino is medium garnet-purple in color. It soars from the glass with classic notions of dried cherries, tobacco leaf, and ripe redcurrants, followed by wafts of wild sage and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate shimmers with energetic red berry and mineral-inspired flavors with a racy backbone and grainy tannins, finishing with a real skip in its step.-Lisa Perrotti-Brown,The Wine Independent 

With four neighbouring parcels totaling just five hectares, Carlo Ferrini says the modest size of his estate enables him to pick at precisely the moment he wants. Harvested mid-September, the 2019 vintage represents Giodo’s 11th release – and the finest so far. It seduces with stunning aromas of gardenia, allspice flower and arbutus berries, all laced with fennel and subtle wood smoke. That immediate charisma is reinforced on the palate, where inner-mouth perfumes persist –it’s like biting into the freshest persimmon. Crunchy yet lush with profound substance, the finely powdered, gracefully assertive tannins give shape, while blood orange pierces the lengthy finish.--Michaela Morris, Decanter
