Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino 2013
Owned by the Mori family since 1974, Il Marroneto is today run by Alessandro Mori, who makes the wine and does so with great love, care and passion; from picking to bottling he follows it day after day as if it was his child, and this can be understood in a moment, by watching him slowly tasting his Brunello or hearing him talking about it with great passion and enthusiasm. He only grows Sangiovese and works in purity. He does not intervene much on the vines, he does not use any type of herbicide or special products for the protection of the plant. Of his wine, he loves the ability it has to express the fruit aromas and flavors, to rest four years in wood – years that the specification of Brunello imposes – and after all this time to remain authentic, delicate and elegant.
Today, Il Marroneto, after more than 30 years is regarded as one of the ten historic companies in Montalcino (Siena). All this has been possible thanks to the long-term commitment and passion that Mori has always devoted to his work. Il Marroneto the Brunello is a traditional wine, aged in large oak barrels from Allier and Slovenia, vinified according to the traditional systems of Montalcino; the result is a very elegant wine, rich in aromas, classic in style and wonderful for aging.

Wine AdvocateIl 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.
