2007 Ferrero Montepulciano Maremma Toscana "Mo"

SKU #1059391

100 % Montepulciano, but vinified in a fresh and very fruity way, with soft tannins and a burst of red stone fruits on the nose and palate. This is delicious with a slight chill on it, and when served alongside grilled meats and fish. According to Wine Spectator: "Earthy and slightly funky, but with some serious ripe fruit underneath the funk. Full and soft. Cleans up with air. Very fruity and delicious. Best after 2010. 100 cases made." (10/10)

100% Montepulciano, incredibly fruity, with very soft tannins. An excellent accompaniment to grilled fish and meats. Please look past the image of Mo and enjoy this very pleasant wine.

"Mo" is right, as in "gimme MO!" The 07 Ferrero MO (which stands for Montepulciano, the grape) is simply delicious. Layers of black fruit and funky, earthy notes and a soft mouthfeel make for an Italian wine that is at once approachable and modern, but without the drama. No fanciness here, just good, old-fashioned food-friendliness and unconditional (ok, almost) drinkability. Uncork and share with someone in your life who might need a little "mo," too.

From our friends at Ferrero (Claudia Ferrero & Pablo Harri) husband & wife team, they have hit another one out of the proverbial ballpark. This is 100% Montepulciano from Maremma, on the palate you will find a dark, brooding profile of scorched earth, smoke, wild cherries and underbrush, with plenty of dark fruit that carries through to the finish. There is outstanding depth here, not to mention terrific overall balance with soft supple tannins. Just the thing for cheese filled pastas.

What a stunning wine! Everything that you would want from a great Bordeaux from a great vintage or a well-structured Napa Valley Cabernet as they use to made back in the 1960’s to the 1980’s, is here in this Gem. This is a wine that is loaded with depth, complexity, and layers of fruit, showing a broad and rich mouthfeel, integrated silky tannins, superb acid structure and a bouquet that screams “I am great!!!!”It is the complete package of cassis, black current, roasted coffee bean, and just pure layers of fruit flavors… a truly great and wonderful wine. Anderson has told me that this incredible Gem really needs to be in your cellar NOW, as it will be in ours immediately. It can drink now with one or two hours of airing after decanting. Enjoy! 14.5% ABV (Jim Barr)

This 2007 Ferrero Montepulciano Maremma Toscana “Mo” astounded us. It benefits from the stellar 2007 vintage, which allowed the grape to ripen fully and develop its full potential. Upon entry the wine shows richness yet it is the great balance that is so rewarding. The wine is spicy, brambly and shows great depth of flavor and a lingering finish. If we were in Montalcino we’d drink it with Pinci (hand-rolled thick spaghetti) with a wild boar ragu. You’ll love it.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
