Critic Notes

The 2016 Giodo is an IGT Toscana expression of 100% Sangiovese. The wine almost resembles a Rosso di Montalcino in form and function, although it does not carry that appellation name. In truth, it is more sophisticated than your average Rosso. Giodo pours from the bottle with dark ruby intensity and ripe aromas of cherry, blackberry and dried raspberry. Lighter notes of spice, tobacco and toasted nut fill in the rear. However, the wine is understated, fundamentally accessible and genuine. This is what makes it such an excellent pairing partner to your favorite pasta recipe. Feb 2018, www.robertparker.com

The 2015 vintage has produced some incredibly juicy yet vibrant wines. Wines with amazing voluptuousness backed with great acidity, fatness and freshness. This style, like 2010 is a real crowd-pleaser, but with trends ...
