PV Tasting Notes
The 2007 Il Marroneto Rosso di Montalcino is a sweet, stylish and sexy wine, offering rose petal, super ripe red cherries, leather, spices and ripe earthiness rise from the glass, medium to full bodied for Sangiovese, this possesses exceptional depth and class. There’s a lovely inner perfume to this, clearly 2007 was an exceptional vintage, and this provides pure Brunello drinking and immense pleasure. Tasted February 2010
It is worth noting, Alessandro Mori, the owner/winemaker does not make a Rosso di Montalcino, he only makes Brunello di Montalcino but declassifies one barrel each year as Rosso to keep his buyers happy.
In 2012, the two vintages of 2007 Brunello di Montalcino were awarded 94 points for the Normal and 96 points for the Madonna Cuvee.... this must represent the finest value wine on our list today.
We would suggest matching this with the finest Italian foods, herb stuffed veal wrapped in Prosciutto, venison braised in cherries, saltimbocca alla romana, most Italian sausages, or pork sausages with lots of herbs, and of course many styles of pasta or pizza.
The Marroneto farm was purchased in 1974 by Giuseppe Mori, father of current owner Alessandro, as a child Alessandro immediately showed great interest in winemaking, which began in two small rooms, the only ones which were available at the time. Following these small tentative steps, the basement was enlarged, both sons trained to become lawyers, but Alessandro was totally enraptured by the winemaking process and the philosophy behind it, decided to follow his passion and gave up the law to become full time winemaker.
Today ‘Alessandro works in the traditional way, both farming and winemaking biodynamically, treating his wines like spoilt children, giving constant love and care, watching slowing as the wines develop over four years in barrel. Alessandro clearly has a deep passion for Sangiovese, and wants his Brunello’s to express the true fruit with all of its perfumes, delicacy and elegance.
All Il Marroneto wines are created in the traditional way, which leads to wines deep in elegance and rich in aromas. After more than 30 years of winemaking the Il Marroneto estate is considered one of the ten most important and famous historical di Montalcino (Siena).
