Buy Il Marroneto Brunello di Montalcino
Vinous 95 points - Dark red cherries, mint, sage, tobacco, licorice and new leather blossom in Il Marroneto’s 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Savory and lifted in the glass, the 2010 possesses stunning overall balance and tons of nuance. The tannins are firm and incisive, yet also remarkably polished. Ideally, readers should cellar the 2010 for at least a few years, but it is going to be very hard to resist the temptation of drinking the 2010 young.  (Feb 2015)

Wine Advocate 95 points - Beautifully ripe and intense, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino never feels overdone or too heavy. In fact, it treads with the lightest of footprints imparting delicate tones of rose petal, forest berry, white cherry, balsam herb and sweet almond as it flutters over the senses. The main message here is elegance and this wine is profoundly eloquent on the subject. The mouthfeel is tight silky and enduring. Delicate mineral notes give focus and definition to the finish. This is a classic Brunello from an iconic vintage. (Feb 2015)

Wine maker notes
A classic and elegant Brunello that is fragrant and fruity on the nose and well-structured on the palate, with a long elegant finish. Pairs well with roasted meat dishes and robust Tuscan recipes.

Il Marroneto was purchased in 1974 by Giuseppe Mori, father of the current owner, Alessandro Mori. Initially, the Mori family made wine in two small rooms in the basement of the family home. As the company evolved, the basement was expanded and Alessandro took over the family business, following his passion. The towers of the city of Siena are the backdrop of the estate’s vineyards located high on the slopes of the hill of Montalcino, an area where grapes have been cultivated since the times of the Etruscans. Alessandro Mori grows only Sangiovese grapes and follows a biodynamic approach to cultivation (although not certified), always abiding by the strict Montalcino regulations. No herbicides are used on the plants. The wines are aged in the coveted Allier and Slovenian oak casks located in the 13th-century tower which, in past centuries, was used for drying out chestnuts.
