Last night we had the opportunity to taste the 2013 Giodo Rosso Toscana. The Giodo Rosso is the 250 cases production baby brother to the Giodo Brunello.. The 2013 big brother, Guido Brunello sells for an average price of $250.00 per bottle. Same vineyards, a little less time in oak and bottle, same old vine Sangiovese, same legendary winemaker, but over $200.00 per bottle less cash. By the way, the wine is spectacular. The fruit is electric, this wine pops with bright red and blue fruit, tremendous spice, all very long in mouth feel and all at a very high octave. One can drink acclaimed high dollar wines every day and this little Rosso's purity of fruit and virtually flawless structure will still stand out in your mind. We often explain that wine is a living product. This wine is not simply alive, it is jumping up and down and doing somersaults in and out of the glass. So if you would like to taste a virtually perfect Sangiovese without spending the $250 per, we highly recommend you give this one a try!
- We tasted it with traditional pot roast simmered in red wine, INCREDIBLE.
- Winemaker Carlo Ferrini has made some of the most acclaimed wines in Italian wine history. You will a list of wineries he works with as well as some links at the bottom of the page.
The proof is always in the glass!
