      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2011

      Classic aromas of rose petals, wild berries, cherries, almonds and orange peel. Deeply elegant on the palate, dense, with firm tannins and a fresh, clean finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Il Marroneto's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is a beautifully polished and pure wine with an incredible level of charisma and energy that is especially evident in the 2011 vintage. In Montalcino, there are few people capable of expressing Sangiovese better than Alessandro Mori. He gives ample room to the grape's inner voice and its true personality. It's impossible to know who is the bigger protagonist: the grape or the winemaker. This is a traditional and elegant wine that exudes silky tannins and fine aromas of wild berry, cola and dried mint. It's the kind of wine you can drink, glass after glass, without ever feeling weighted down or overwhelmed." Robert Parker

      "Il Marroneto's 2011 Brunello di Montalcino is one of the wines of the vintage. Silky, open-knit and gracious, the 2011 boasts superb elegance and all of the finesse that is typical of Montalcino's northern sector. Rose petal, sweet red berry and lifted, minty notes grace the palate in a sensual, silky Brunello endowed with class and pedigree. The classic sense of tannin and salinity comes through on the finish, but it is the interplay of classic structure and the ripeness of the vintage that is most compelling of all." Antonio Galloni

      "Elegant and structured, this offers enticing scents suggesting wild berry, pressed flower, chopped herb and baking spice. The refined palate delivers ripe wild cherry, cinnamon, star anise and tobacco alongside tightly knit, refined tannins. It's tempting to drink now but it will be even better in a few more years."

    • Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

      Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

      The Brunello di Montalcino is very solid, mature and intense, with classic aromas of rose petals, wild berries, cherries, almonds and orange peel. Deeply elegant on the palate, dense, with firm tannins and a fresh, clean finish. SUPERIORE.DE

      "Made strictly according to the Sangiovese playbook, the Il Marroneto 2012 Brunello di Montalcino shows that exacting Sangiovese precision and personality. This is Alessandro Mori's greatest talent. He takes this workhorse grape and gives it a platform to articulate its most hidden and intricate inner feelings and sentiments. This is a bright and very tight red wine that will benefit from more years to flesh out further. All those budding aromas of wild berry, licorice, cola, and blue flower are strategically in place and ready to explode in time. The wine opens to a luminous dark ruby color and a compact mouthfeel that is spicy and fresh on the close. This is an impressive annata wine that shows the personal evolution of a man and his estate." Robert Parker

      "Bright deep red. Youthfully reticent nose offers aromas of strawberry, raspberry, minerals and violets. Clean, fresh and juicy, with knockout inner-mouth perfume to the red berry and cherry flavors. Finishes long, vibrant and multilayered, with a delightfully refined mouth feel. An early candidate for the wine with the finest tannins of the vintage." Ian d’Agata (vinous.com)

      "This offers a mix of strawberry and cherry fruit that is very pure, married to an elegant frame. Beautifully balanced, with refined tannins and a mineral-, tobacco- and spice-tinged aftertaste." Wine Spectator

      "Forest floor, wild berry, new leather and balsam are some of the aromas you'll find in this bright, linear red. On the palate, firm, polished tannins support ripe red cherry, white pepper, andcrushed mint notes with a hint of black tea. It's still young and tightly wound but already boasts stunning elegance." Wine Enthusiast

      "Lustrous mid ruby with orange tinges. Fresh, lifted cherry fruit on the nose. Fine, subtle and with lots of concentration and gorgeous, but firm tannins." Jancis Robinson

    • 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 "Madonna delle Grazie" DOCG 2011

      Brunello di Montalcino “Madonna delle Grazie” DOCG 2011

      Madonna delle Grazie belongs to the biggest Brunello di Montalcino. It has fantastically intense aromas of small wild berries, moist, white truffles, violets and many other nuances. On the palate it has a perfect structure, firm tannins and a linear acidity, persistent on the palate, of great inner energy and vitality, in short: the deepest expression of Sangiovese. SUPERIORE.DE

      "This Brunello comes from one of the finest single vineyards in the Montalcino appellation. Last year, I awarded this wine 100 points. This year, I encountered many similar characteristics to remind me of that unforgettable masterpiece. The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is an excellent wine that offers enormous variety purity with bright berry aromas, pressed violets, wet earth, cola and powdered licorice. The wine is translucent, brilliant and luminous with bright ruby highlights. It's a medium-bodied expression with grace, buoyancy and enormous integrity. If you love Sangiovese, you will adore Madonna delle Grazie." Robert Parker

      "The 2011 Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie is quite a bit darker and deeper than the straight Brunello, but it retains that super-classic element of weightlessness that is such a signature of this site. Macerated dark cherries, hard candy, menthol, licorice and cloves are some of the signatures in this exotic, intensely perfumed Brunello from Il Marroneto. The Madonna delle Grazie is not necessarily a better or more complex wine than the straight Brunello, but rather a different expression of this site on the northern side of town." Antonio Galloni

      "This is perfumed with classic scents of wild cherry, leather, crushed violet, baking spice and a balsamic note. The bold palate delivers juicy black cherry, black raspberry, anise, white pepper and cinnamon alongside firm tannins. Despite the hefty body, it also shows an almost weightless elegance while the fruit richness seamlessly supports the warmth of alcohol on the close." Wine Enthusiast

    About the winemakers
    Il Marroneto
    Tuscany | 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
