Ferrero sits in the southwesterly corner of Montalcino and their wines show lots of black cherry, plum, chocolate with a satiny texture, round, full and broad on the palate. The wines from this zone (they are bordered by Argiano and Banfi's Riserva vineyard "Poggio all'Oro") are really rich and you can feel the sun shining on these grapes, ripening, and filling them with a dense richness. This is gorgeous Sangiovese, full-bodied, ripe, sultry, lush, smooth and warm on the palate kind of like if Brunello were made in Napa this would be from Calistoga, next to Chateau Montelena. This is a wine you can drink now but will want to put some away for a few years to let it blossom completely. (Greg St.Clair, K&L's Italian buyer)

Note: this wine should not be opened anytime within the next few years! Everything that I expected from my first taste of the super-hyped '04 vintage. Plenty of structure, acidity, and just a tease of the coffee flavors and dark chocolate accents that make great Brunello what it is. Big, powerful, and enticing. Just wait.....
