Tasting Notes

Pablo Härri arrived in Italy from Switzerland in the early '80s and met his partner and wife Claudia Ferrero while both were working at a large winery in Montalcino. The two started a family and in 2002 built their own winery in a restored barn and stable. Their winery has a prestigious location on the southwestern slope in Montalcino, between Banfi’s Poggio alle Mura vineyard and Argiano. Pablo passed away in October of 2017. He left his wife Claudia and their three daughters, two of whom have followed his footsteps as a winemakers. Today the winery produces wine from 14 acres of vineyard: 7.5 in Montalcino and slightly more than 6 in Montenero d'Orcia.

    what you dream of and desire in an Italian wine is here. The younger sibling of the renowned Brunello di Montalcino. Great depth of dried black cherry and wild-berry fruit, and careful use of oak revealed in a hint of spice and vanilla. Wonderful freshness combined with structure and smooth tannin.

    Ferrero's Rosso di Montalcino offers some really delicious Sangiovese at a very affordable price. It's bright, juicy, loaded with fresh cherry fruit flavors and represents one of the best values in our current Italian line-up.

    Now we're talking a perfect Sangiovese to bring home. With the pedigree of a Brunello, but with a much lower cost. This would be perfect accompaniment to your Italian soirée.

    This is an ideal Rosso di Montalcino. It is medium bodied, with high toned red Sangiovese fruit, a floral hint that is offset with sotto bosco, and a soft minerality. It is delicious. It is a wine that works for all occasions. Most importantly, for me, it scratches enough of a Brunello itch that I keep my hands off the Brunello so they can really develop in bottle, an ideal Rosso.

    I tasted this last February and have been waiting its arrival. This is a user friendly rosso, bright fruit hit you first, black cherries cassis and ripe strawberries and then Tuscany starts to roll across you palate, the terroir takes on the rest of this wine, giving it a long finish that lingers. Needs an hour or so of breathing time.

    Rolling back with a little more restraint on the fruit front, the 2017 vintage from Ferrero offers a more harmonious approach from this winery. This is raspberry and cherry laden but with more structure and balance behind. A terrific weeknight Sangiovese as its tannins are mellow and the acidity keeps it fresh.
