Description

Alessandro Mori, the winemaker of Il Marroneto, has been described as “the Sangiovese whisperer” by Monica Larner of the Wine Advocate for his ability to draw out the grape’s purest, most innate character with incredible energy and charm. Situated immediately below the walls of Montalcino town, at the top of the hill facing out into the valley, the old vines and altitude of il Marroneto’s vineyards produce wine that is ethereal, complex, delightful, and thought-provoking all at once. In many ways, his approach and style is reminiscent of Bruno Giacosa’s Barolo and Barbaresco.

Producer Information: Il Marroneto

Stretching over a tiny 9 hectares, Il Marroneto is owned by the charismatic Alessandro Mori. Son of lawyer Giuseppe Mori, Alessandro gave up his law career to make Brunello full time in 1994. A self-proclaimed traditionalist, he believes Brunello should always be age-worthy and full of energy, supported by a hallmark vein of acidity. In this context, it is then not surprising that the wines of Il Marroneto are some of the most elegant and age-worthy Brunello in Montalcino, demonstrating extraordinary breeding and grace.
