"Each year I am increasingly impressed with the wines I taste from Il Marroneto." - Antonio Galloni
We always love it when we can offer Il Marroneto Brunello as their wines have really been on a winning streak in the new millennium, culminating with a perfect WA100pt rating for their 2010 Madonna delle Grazie. It’s even better when we can present a wine from this well-respected producer at over 40% off and for considerably less than you’ll find it anywhere else!
Don’t miss this opportunity to get one of Montalcino’s standout Brunelli from an accessible vintage, right in its prime drinking window.
Connoisseurs of a more honest and transparent Sangiovese will certainly appreciate the profile on this Brunello, as well as the more immediate appeal of the vintage. The natural acidity and minerality are highlights here with notes of wild cherry, citrus rind, white pepper and licorice. The 2009 Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino is a welcome (and refreshing) sign that Montalcino continues to drift back towards the more authentic style of Sangiovese that made Brunello a legend decades ago.
Situated in the northern part of Montalcino, Il Marroneto is more in step with Costanti, or even Biondi Santi than the southerly producers, and their “big, cask-aged Brunellos offers tons of style and sheer pedigree," per Antonio Galloni.
Brunello fans would be wise to take advantage of this remarkable deal - you won’t find a better price elsewhere, and you won’t have to wait to enjoy this wine either! Drinking wonderfully now, but capable of going another 5-7 years, we recommend locking this one in by the case. Cheers!
