"Il Marroneto's 2013 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautiful wine and one that invites you to partake in a long evening of good food and even better company. This is a deeply convivial expression of Sangiovese that offers just a glimmer of much-needed informality and coziness to guarantee comfort. But make no mistake, this Brunello reminds you of its pedigree and precision as well. The bouquet opens to white cherry, fragrant rose blossom and violets. The finish is smooth and pliable, with graceful endnotes of smoke and crushed mineral."
"For more than 30 years, Alessandro Mori, owner/winemaker for Il Marroneto, has embodied all that is Brunello: passionate, pedigreed and monumental in his professional and personal convictions. Mori's capacity for leveraging the magic of Northern Montalcino's most prestigious sub zone has raised the standard for how critics around the world view this prized wine, many of whom have singled out Alessandro Mori as someone who embodies what has become Brunello's greatest moment. Sharing the same magical corner of northern Montalcino with luminaries such as Casanova di Neri, Il Marroneto's history is relatively young, dating back to the late 1970s when Alessandro's father bought prized vineyard property and immediately got to work, releasing their first Il Marroneto Brunello in 1980. Alessandro, then a young man, hastily learned to respect and master his craft under two of Tuscany's greatest masters of the trade: Mario Cortevesio (Il Poggione Brunello) and Giulio Gambelli." -Importer
""Il Marroneto, a tiny six-hectare estate on the northern side of Montalcino, has emerged as a major player in just about the last decade. Alessandro Mori crafts uncompromisingly traditional Brunellos of real pedigree. The straight Brunello is a bit more classically austere than the Madonna delle Grazie parcel selection, which is richer, deeper and darker. In many vintages, I prefer the straight Brunello...Readers who have not tasted these Brunellos yet owe it to themselves to do so." Antonio Galloni - Vinous
