Freshly cut roses sweet red berries mint and licorice are some of the many notes that flesh out in the glass. Firm tannins provide the backbone to the fruit. The 2007 impresses for its freshness vibrancy and fabulous overall balance. Bright high-toned floral notes add lift on the finish. Most important of all the wine is flat-out delicious. This is a fabulous showing from Il Marroneto. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. These are two thrilling wines from Il Marroneto a property that continues to show significant improvement. --- Antonio Galloni

This has good acidity, offsetting sweet, ripe cherry, raspberry and tobacco flavors. Fresh and concentrated, with fine balance and a finish of cherry, spice and earth. Best from 2016 through 2033. – BS

High-pitched aromas of cherry rose petal licorice and herbs along with a whiff of leather. Dense smooth and penetrating with lovely floral energy and lift not to mention sneaky sweetness to the red cherry flavor. Finishes with a firm tannic backbone and a sappy quality spreading out nicely on the aftertaste. Built to age and not for drinking now. 92+

The bouquet opens with bold brushstrokes that don’t match the delicate, subdued feel in the mouth. It delivers most of its energy on the nose and segues to a much calmer, more straightforward style on the close.

Some volatility, with plums and mahogany. Full body, with silky tannins and bright acidity. Firm and slightly lean, but attractive. Decant before serving.
