Alberelli di Giodo – Nerello Mascalese Terre Siciliane – 2020
Like many, Carlo Ferrini as a connoisseur was also fascinated in recent years by the growth of viticulture on Etna, a different land yet to be discovered, so he decided to start a new adventure here as well. The opportunity presented itself shortly thereafter, in fact he had the chance to acquire some hectares of Nerello Mascalese vines in different areas managing to produce his first Etna Rosso in 2016. We are located in the northern slope of the volcano precisely in the districts of Rampante and Pietrarizzo between 700 and 950 meters above sea level, lava soils, free-range plants bred to alberello (from which the name of the wine is inspired) with ages between 80 and 100 years with low yields, a true natural heritage. Fermentations take place in open steel tanks with light punching down for 20 days to achieve a delicate extraction, while aging takes place in 500/700-liter French tonneaux for 18 months, then rests in cement a short time before staying in the bottle 12 months. A range of explosive aromas in the true sense of the word, red fruit and graphite notes while on the palate it is forthright, fresh with bold structure and long minerality on the finish.

Some passions cannot be described if you are not a participant in them, Giodo was in fact born thanks to the love for Sangiovese of Carlo Ferrini, recognized worldwide as one of the best winemakers in Italy for technique and personality of wines. After years of consulting, working at other wineries such as Tenuta San Leonardo as a winemaker, he decided that the time had finally come to fulfill his dream of producing his own wine. In 2002, after careful checks and studies of the territory, he bought a hectare of vineyard in Montalcino in the southeastern part between Sant’Angelo in Colle and Sant’Antimo facing Mount Amiata, thus crowning his great passion for wine with a new personal project that would meet his requirements. A passion also transmitted over the years to his daughter Bianca with whom he has expanded the business; nowadays, 6 hectares of Sangiovese grapes are cultivated for Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso Toscana Igt, and since 2015, vineyards of Carricante and Nerello Mascalese have been acquired in Sicily on Mount Etna for a total of 2.5 hectares from which a white and a red are made. The style of the estate is to produce wines that are balanced and simple, sustainable agriculture is practiced, low yields and maximum selection of grapes, different materials are used in winemaking such as steel, cement and ceramic, and in aging French barrels are preferred. In a nutshell, a gustatory harmony of several territories with their main grapes represented by the sympathetic homino-vine labels symbolizing the bond between man and wine. Giodo wines represent class!
