96 Points Wine Advocate - Out of the gate, the Il Marroneto 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows exciting purity and red fruit intensity. Compared to the Madonna delle Grazie, this wine has an ever-more lifted quality to the bouquet, whereas the Madonna has a firmer underlying texture that bodes well for longer aging. 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 (which is not too different from what we call chaparral in California), 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.- Monica Larner
Classic 2015 Brunello, elegant and structured at the same time, comes from a vinification capable of maximizing the aromas of Sangiovese and therefore also the typicality of the position. After the months that it spends in barrels, it remains fresh, fragrant, fruity, and does not suffer from the aggression of the wood. Fantastic for moments of relaxation.

The Il Marroneto story began in 1974 when the Mori family started to make Brunello for fun and for the love of the wine. In time this “playing with wine” became more serious and Allessandro Mori decided to expand the cellars and pursue his love of winemaking, adopting a traditional and minimalist approach, producing wines that are 100% Sangiovese.

Do you have a favourite food and wine pairing with your Brunello? I love to drink a glass of good wine separate from food. Playing cards with my friends, watching a movie, reading a book…. I can enjoy all the pleasures that come from the glass. I love to think that my wine can be perfect for these moments of intimacy. - Alessandro Mori, Owner

Italy's most ancient wine region, Tuscany may not be a heavyweight in terms of quantity, but as the home of two of the country's most famous fine wines – Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino – it certainly holds its own in terms of quality. Tuscany's climate ranges from Mediterranean on the coast to continental deep in the Apennines. More than two thirds of the province is covered with hills, an important terroir factor in its fine wines.
