2018 Giodo La Quinta Toscana 750ml
Winery Notes- Sangiovese also goes to produce this younger interpretation that matures twelve months in 500- and 1,200-litre oak casks. This expression of Sangiovese comes from the fifth vineyard planted in Montalcino, hence its name – in Italian “La Quinta” means the fifth – is remarkably refined. The oak has less impact than on the Brunello, allowing full sway to appealing aromas and crisp red berry fruit. Its label, different from Brunello’s small Sangiovese figure, shows a man living within the circle of the world of wine, since this wine’s denomination is open to any kind of combination and blend.

JAMES SUCKLING REVIEW: A pretty red with density and richness, offering cherry and chocolate aromas and flavors, as well as hazelnuts. Yet, it’s tight and so fine and focused. Very polished tannins run the length of the palate.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Exhibits a strong Sangiovese character, with cherry, earth, iron and leather aromas and flavors. Solidly built and nicely balanced, leaving an aftertaste of savory cherry, iron and tobacco accents. Sangiovese.
