It's linear, alluring and ethereally elegant, delivering juicy strawberry, red cherry, thyme and white pepper framed in taut refined tannins and racy acidity. It's still youthfully austere but loaded with finesse and a crystalline purity. Give it time to fully develop. Drink 2024–2034. KERIN O’KEEFE

Proprietor Alessandro Mori compares the 2014 vintage to 1989: another slender year which evolved slowly to eventually reveal intensely floral aromas. For the 2014, he made five separate passages in order to harvest grapes...   Proprietor Alessandro Mori compares the 2014 vintage to 1989: another slender year which evolved slowly to eventually reveal intensely floral aromas. For the 2014, he made five separate passages in order to harvest grapes at their optimal ripeness. He didn't produce a separate Madonna delle Grazie bottling this time around. The resulting wine opens up gradually to reveal plum and cherry blossoms, rosehip, anise and forest berries. The palate is mineral-driven and lifted by tangy acidity. This wine demonstrates substantial power relative to many of its peers yet retains the elegance of the vintage. Very Brunello-esque.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, February 2019
Il Marroneto's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is thin and streamlined in terms of appearance. Indeed, this is one of the lightest and most luminous red wines I have seen from Montalcino in recent memory. You might mistake it...   Il Marroneto's 2014 Brunello di Montalcino is thin and streamlined in terms of appearance. Indeed, this is one of the lightest and most luminous red wines I have seen from Montalcino in recent memory. You might mistake it for a Pinot Noir when regarded from afar. It shines with radiant ruby and garnet hues. In terms of bouquet, this Brunello emits steady aromas of wild berry, cassis, toasted almond and dried garden rose. That floral impact is the wine's most endearing characteristic. However, the wine does lose momentum in terms of mouthfeel because the finish is short and abrupt. The wine needs a year or two to flesh out. Bottle production is 15,833 strong.- ML

Healthy medium dark red. Musky nuances to the aromas of redcurrant, herbs, violet and earth. Fresh and pliant on the palate, with a touch of sweetness and sneaky complexity to its red plum, redcurrant and soil flavors...   Healthy medium dark red. Musky nuances to the aromas of redcurrant, herbs, violet and earth. Fresh and pliant on the palate, with a touch of sweetness and sneaky complexity to its red plum, redcurrant and soil flavors. Finishes with sweet but firm tannins and outstanding length. -- Ian D'Agata

Wine Spectator, June 2019
A whiff of black pepper leads to cherry and strawberry flavors, accented by iron and leather notes. Firm and dry, with vibrant acidity driving the dusty finish. On the lighter side, but shows personality. Drink now...   A whiff of black pepper leads to cherry and strawberry flavors, accented by iron and leather notes.
