Il Marroneto

Alessandro Mori is a living legend. His wines truly reflect his sometimes introvert personality - and I mean that in good way! He's been around for ages, and his wines have manic followers across the globe, as he's proven to master the flickery Sangiovese better than most. I'm not sure whether to "produce the best wine possible", is his idea nor his mission, but if they are; then both will apply here.

Vineyards are located just outside the city centre, on the western side. It's tiny and steep, with great drainage but moderate, direct sunlight result in a prolonged growing season. The extended hang time guarantees perfect phenolic ripeness of tannins and maintained acidity.

"My wines, the result of a process that came out of the commercial fees, are the expression of my personality”

It's almost difficult to chose a more traditional path in winemaking; extended maceration in concrete vats, long aging in old Bottis in order to be able not to either clarity nor filter.

Brunello di Montalcino

The Brunello from Il Marroneto belongs to the most historic wines from Montalcino. Produced since the early 80’s, this has constantly been one of the leading wines in the appellation. There’s no shortcuts involved in the making of this great wine, only meticulous farming and a careful vinification. Thanks to the quality of the tannins, Il Marroneto’s Brunello di Montalcino is approachable on release, but to those willing to wait, it’s seriously rewarding.

Brunello di Montalcino Madonna delle Grazie

Madonna delle Grazie represents the top selection at Il Marroneto. It takes it’s name from the address where the estate is located, just outside the walled-in city centre of the picturesque Montalcino village. Madonna delle Grazie is the epitome of what Sangiovese is capable of, and it’s constructed for the long haul. Whether you see it as a collectors’ item or just another great wine is entirely up to you, but we prefer the latter.
