"Inviting aromas of wild red berry, new leather, rose petal, crushed herb and cake spice abound on this fragrant red. The radiant, elegant palate doles out succulent Marasca cherry, raspberry compote, cinnamon and licorice while firm, glossy tannins and racy acidity lend an age-worthy structure and balance. Drink 20232033."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 94
"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."

Decanter 94
"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."

Wine & Spirits 94
"Alessandro Moris 2013 Brunello unfolds with flavors of fresh cherry, red currant and pomegranate tinged with orange peel. It gains intensity and complexity with air, as mineral tones and subtle spice notes appear. Bright, well-integrated acidity propels the long, mouthwatering finish."
About Il Marroneto
Amongst the wines of Brunello di Montalcino, no two wines are ever created alike. It is true that much diversity can be found in the appellation thanks to climate, soil, varying altitude and expositions. Brunello, in general, is often rendered as powerful, even virile, in terms of its fruit, tannins and concentration. But this presents an incomplete assessment. In the northern reaches of the appellation, however, precisely the location of Il Marroneto, these convenient descriptors fall aside, privileging the unique microclimate of the area that promotes complexity, elegance, aromatics and freshness. For all their fanfare and sheer precision, the wines of Il Marroneto present a strong case for production zone districts within Montalcino.
