Reviews for 2005 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino

IWC 90
Stephen Tanzer's IWC - Stephen Tanzer's IWC, July 2010
Bright dark red. Red berries blood orange and a strong suggestion of minerals on the nose. Juicy and firm but with a greater than usual sappiness and sweetness to its red berry candied violet and licorice flavors... Bright dark red. Red berries blood orange and a strong suggestion of minerals on the nose. Juicy and firm but with a greater than usual sappiness and sweetness to its red berry candied violet and licorice flavors. Finishes impressively long and mouthcoating with firm tannic spine and noteworthy energy. This seems to me to be the best young Brunello made by Ferrero yet. This estate is owned by Pablo Harri and his wife; Harri was the longtime winemaker at Col d'Orcia but is now devoting his attention full time to his own estate.

This hearty Brunello offers meaty tones of smoked bacon and ham that are wrapped over aromas of prune mature cherry and blackberry. There's very good persistency here and silky tannins help shape the wine's velvety texture.
