The La Quinta comes from the 5th planted sangiovese vineyard that Podere Giodo has planted hence the name - in Italian "La Quinta" which means the fifth. The vineyard has an area of only 3.5 ha at an altitude of 300 meters, located on the southeast. The soil is mainly poor clay with pebbles

The Sangiovese grape is aged here for twelve months in 500 and 1200 liter oak barrels so here the oak has less impact than that of the Brunello, allowing it to fully enjoy attractive aromas and crisp red berries. Nice and fresh and less bombastic than the Giodo Brunello. Tasty and especially fresh aromas and flavors of cherries and chocolate, as well as hazelnuts with highly polished tannins. Delicious to drink now, but can also be imposed for another 10 years.

Giodo was founded by the renowned Italian winemaker Carlo Ferrini. The name is a tribute to his parents Giovanna and Donetallo. Giodo represents a quest for excellence obtained by improving every detail. The history of Giodo in Montalcino begins in 2002, when Carlo Ferrini, after years of research, finally identified his first hectare to purchase in the prestigious Brunello designation; Today, halfway between Sant'Angelo in Colle and Sant'Antimo, his winery rests on six hectares of vineyard. With regard to aspect, elevation and soil types, the location is perfect for viticulture. A majestic row of cypress trees lures visitors to this almost hidden, magical place, while the vines dedicated to Brunello di Montalcino and to IGT Toscana enjoy breathtaking panoramic views over the winding hills of Montalcino to the massif of Monte Amiata.
