2006 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino
A rich and fruity wine with lots of tannins underneath. Full and rich, with dried cherries and blueberries. Round and chewy. Pretty pure fruit.
A polished Brunello, offering black cherry and blackberry flavors that mesh with the generous texture, ending with a spicy finish. Not a big red, and the serious tannins need time to integrate, so the wine should only become more elegant as it develops. Best from 2014 through 2026.
This dark Brunello by Ferrero offers a nice ensemble of mineral and graphite notes followed by mature berry fruit and smooth, rich extraction. Dark spice and toasted almond pick up the rear.
Medium, youthful ruby. Candied-fruit character, very round and mellow, with acidity giving it some structure. Starts off mellow and round and ends on drying tannin note. Convincing length, though. (WS)
