• "Ignaccio" Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018

      “Ignaccio” Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2018

      Bright red. Enticing aromas of sour cherry, aromatic herbal spice and violets are lifted by a tangy minerality. On the palate, fresh, pure flavors of sour cherry, currant and minerals - paired with an invigorating acid wire- delight. Finishing friendly and long, Ignaccio is wonderfully personable with its floral and mineral notes. A Rosso that skilfully plays off its exposure with freshness, elegance and minerality, making it (not just for us) undisputedly one of the best in its denomination. SUPERIORE.DE

      "The 2018 Rosso di Montalcino Ignaccio is flat-out delicious with a woodland and almost-autumnal profile. Wild strawberries, blueberries, lavender and sage mix with hints of cinnamon and flowery undergrowth. It’s silky-smooth, almost velvety in feel yet perfectly balanced and full of life, displaying ripe wild berry fruit and inner violet florals. There’s enough structure here to carry the 2018 for a number of years in the cellar, but who can keep their hands off of it today? Alessandro Mori selects his Rosso from the same barrels he uses to make Brunello, yet after only a year of aging." Vinous

      "Fiercely traditional and a consistently good craftsman of wine, Alessandro Mori is becoming one of Montalcino's top producers for its globally recognised cru, 'Madonna delle Grazie'. His Rosso, Ignaccio is no less detail-oriented. This wine is usually made from declassified estate Brunello, grown on the northern side of the village where it is cooler, and situated on some of the oldest limestone soil in Montalcino. This 2018 is an intoxicating Rosso with purity of fresh raspberry, yellow gentian and star anise. There is cherry fruit in depth, with great savouriness over the palate. The tannins are firm and chalky - typical of Sangiovese from cooler areas - without any bitterness, while the acidity pushes the fruit to an outstanding orange peel finish." Decanter

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2013

      Famous 2013er Brunello, classic and of best quality. Rich and complex bouquet, dense and juicy on the palate. The aromatic fullness of fruit, silky tannins, well portioned acidity, excellent structure and length provide the greatest pleasure. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Shiny, rich ruby garnet. Opened with notes of tobacco and cinchona bark, then cherry, in the background cloves and roses. Hearty and gripping, it shows itself with a grippy tannin, earthy notes at the back, exciting, juicy and long". Falstaff

      "Lustrous mid ruby with orange tinges. Fresh cherry nose with hints of herbs. Juicy sweet cherry palate with lots of powdery tannins. Medium-bodied, supple, complex and long." Jancis Robinson

      "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." Robert Parker

      "Alessandro Mori's Il Marroneto estate is located in the northern part of the zone, reaching up to an altitude of 400 metres. It comprises 6ha of vines planted between 1975 and 1984, on mineral-rich marine sand. The 2013 exhibits marvelous precision and purity, with scented nuances of violet and forest blossoms overlaying tea and dark earth. Succulent acidity keeps the wine brisk, while tightly wound tannins need time to come around. A standout." Decanter

      "Bright red. The intense note of violet on the nose is absolutely captivating and nicely lifts the aromas of sweet red cherry and aromatic oils. Then very rich, dense and juicy, conveying a seamless quality to its multilayered orchard fruit, spicy red berry and mineral flavors. The exhilarating finish echoes with lingering and repeating floral and mineral notes nicely extended by lipsmacking but harmonious acidity. Classic vintages such as the 2013 really showcase Il Marroneto’s magnificent terroir to its fullest capacity; in these vintages, talented Alessandro Mori produces sleek, refined Brunellos that are true benchmarks of Sangiovese in Montalcino. Very well done." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2014

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2014

      Beautifully mature and intense, but never exaggerated or too heavy, the Brunello of Il Marroneto present themselves. In fact, the 2014 edition is also almost on tiptoe with our senses and convinces with delicate tones of rose petals, wild berries, white cherries, balsamic herbs and sweet almonds. The main message of this wine is elegance, and this specimen is an archetype on this parquet floor, abundantly difficult in the 2014 vintage. The mouthfeel is firm, silky and persistent. Delicate mineral notes lend precision and definition to the long finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Starts with seductive raspberry-leather aroma; robust in the mouth, hearty tannins, good acidity, full of melt and length. Convinces with its powerful-elegant cut." Vinum

      "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." Vinous

      "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." Decanter

      "One of the few ageworthy wines of the vintage, this radiant red boasts enticing scents of chopped mint, wild berry, tilled soil and pipe tobacco. 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." (Cellar Selection) Wine Enthusiast

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2016

      Silky, open and graceful, it captivates with outstanding elegance and the finesse typical of Montalcino's northern sector. Rose petals, sweet red berries and graceful, minty notes grace the palate in a sensual, silky Brunello that exudes its class and pedigree with the first sip. The traditional Marroneto style of fine-grained tannin and subtle saline notes assert themselves on the finish - but what is most compelling is the interplay of classic structure, extract sweetness and the class of the vintage. Great final - great ageing potential - great wine! SUPERIORE.DE

      "Sparkling, medium dense ruby garnet. Very charming, open nose, shows notes of pomegranate, blood oranges and juicy cherries, some leather in the background. Gripping tannin, embedded in sweet melting, salty and juicy, builds up for a long time, then long final, great wine!" Falstaff

      "Il Marroneto's 2016 Brunello di Montalcino is a delicate and heavenly, perfumed beauty. Roses mix with lilac and violets before giving way to a dusting of sweet spice, nuances of plum and white strawberries. It's wonderfully pure, seeming almost weightless at times yet with gorgeous inner sweetness and a complex display of bright red fruits laced with minerals, hints of licorice and building florality. The long and classically structured finish guarantees that no matter how enjoyable this may be today, it will only get better." Vinous

      "Owner and winemaker Alessandro Mori calls himself a naturalista. His wines ferment spontaneously with indigenous years and see long ageing in large old oak casks. He allows the natural temperatures of the cellar to guide the wine's refinement and uses minimal sulphur throughout. Along with all of its signature floral fragrances of rose and violet, ll Marroneto's 2016 is positively spicy with a peppery, juniper snap. It sits lightly on the palate while delivering profound flavour and length. Clean and bright, distinct notes of rosehip and raspberry ring out while refined tannins sneak up with textured chalkiness." Decanter

      "Out of the gate, the Il Marroneto 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows exciting purity and red fruit intensity. The character here is fresh, lively, youthful and vibrant. In fact, I would recommend drinking this wine while all those elements are still intact. The bouquet is crazy fun to describe: I get whiffs of black cherry, macchia mediterranea, peppercorn, dried cranberry and even a whiff of something that reminded me of the delicious rosemary herb mix you stuff inside roast porchetta. The base of the wine is light, almost weightless, but its structure and firmness do eventually catch up on the long finish." Robert Parker

      "Perfumed, focused and loaded with energy, this radiant red boasts enticing scents of iris, rose, crushed mint and wild berry. Boasting ethereal elegance as well as intensity and flavor, the chiseled palate has great fruit purity, delivering juicy red cherry, spiced cranberry, star anise and white pepper. Noble tannins and bright acidity provide balance and an ageworthy framework." Wine Enthusiast

    About the winemakersIl MarronetoTuscany | Montalcino
    Il Marroneto

    When the lawyer Giuseppe Mori began planting his first vineyard in Montalcino in the seventies, his two sons Andrea and Alessandro also showed great interest in his project. However, while Andrea later embarked on a legal career, Alessandro developed into a thoroughbred winemaker. With devotion and sensitivity to Tuscany, with its luxuriant nature and great agricultural products, he has developed his little-known historical small business Il Marroneto, situated around a medieval watchtower, into one of the most important producers of Brunello full of character in the north-western and therefore rather cooler part of the famous cultivation area.

    Alessandro Mori is supported in his work by the creative soul of the company, Lucia Nannetti, and the cellar manager Maurizio Valeriani. The management of the vineyards, which occupy only six hectares, is based on a traditional and minimalist philosophy. The plants are influenced as little as possible by human hands and are not treated with herbicides or conventional pesticides. The vines on the almost 400-metre-high slopes of Montosoli, which surround the estate in a continuous manner, are arranged so generously on sandy soils that each plant has sufficient space for good root penetration.

    From a stylistic point of view, Il Marroneto's drops, produced in a small number of bottles, are classic, very elegant and rich in aroma, without being over-concentrated. With a few new plots at lower altitudes, the exquisite wines of the Tuscan jewel that has been producing Brunello di Montalcino since the 1980 vintage have become even more complex over time.

    Alessandro Mori carefully follows every step from harvesting to bottling. Both the traditionally vinified vintage wine and the Cru Madonna delle Grazie, named after a medieval chapel, mature in the cellar expanded in the 1990s in large barrels from Slavonia and Allier. The careful work of the Il Marroneto winery, known far beyond the borders of Italy, has of course not remained hidden from influential wine critics. The Madonna delle Grazie vineyard wine, for example, was produced by the "wine pope"Robert Parker journalist Monica Larner for the first time. "Best Brunello 2011" ...and I've chosen the best. SUPERIORE.DE

    "We have often asked for patience for wines that can give us unforgettable emotions in time. As for the Sangiovese of Il Maronneto, this is not only a necessary indication, but also a very beneficial one, as shown by the simply great bottles that have been produced since the 1970s by the passion of Alessandro Mori..."Gambero Rosso
