Podere Giodo Toscana Rosso

Carlo Ferrini is one of Italy’s best-known winemakers, boasting a professional career spanning more than 30 years throughout the peninsula, from Trentino in the north to Sicily in the south, and “wine offspring” that are among Italy’s most prestigious labels. In 2002, with the purchase of his first plot of land, Ferrini launched a new adventure, and a fresh challenge, but one that was really the fulfilment of a long-held passion.

WINEMAKER NOTES

Giodo is an enological project and, at the same time, a message to the wine world regarding the Sangiovese varietal. Sangiovese is in fact the Godfather of all red Italian grapes. It is the most planted varietal in Italy, it’s the ultimate varietal. We symbolize with our label, our commitment to this grape. The circle on the label represents the earth the man with open arms is ready to fully embrace it, and work in harmony. Our Toscana Rosso IGT, wants to be the best expression of this incredible grape.

TASTING NOTES

An aromatic wine showing cherry, currant, strawberry, leather, and spice flavors. There is lively acidity, keeping it focused, and it is very approachable with dusty tannins. There is a nice lingering tobacco accent on the lovely finish.
