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

Medium red. 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... Medium red. 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+

Wine Spectator, June 2013
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

Label

Il Marroneto’s classical Brunello, from 100% Sangiovese Grosso, is made in the traditional style - elegant and at the same time, structured. It results from a vinification whose aim is to show as much as possible the wonderful aromatics of the varietal and allow the terroir of the vineyard and the region to shine.

Winery

Il Marroneto

Il Marroneto is regarded as one of ten historic companies of Montalcino. Purchased in 1974 by Giuseppe Mori, a lawyer and father of the current owner of the company, Alessandro Mori, he decided to make Brunello, “a little for fun and a bit for passion”. Together with his two sons, they began their wine adventure using two small rooms in one of the estate’s historic buildings dating to 1246, previously used for drying chestnuts.

The vineyards of Il Marroneto extend on the north slope of the hill, about 350m high, in the immediate vicinity of the walls of the town of Montalcino. The first 3,000 meters of vineyard were planted in 1975, the rest in 1979 and finally 9,000 meters were planted in 1984.

Vineyard management is based on a traditional and minimalist philosophy, treating the vines as little as possible, avoiding excessive production, and following the practice of using natural grasses between vine rows. Great attention has been paid to the vineyard’s ecosystem, allowing the Sangiovese to have space to develop excellent roots. The result is a very elegant wine, rich in aromas, classic, and worthy of contemplation.
