Vineyard Information

Owner Alessandro Mori's wines are some of the most mineral of the whole Denominazione, and are always characterized by high acidity and very bright fresh fruit aromas and flavors, with no undue weight or over-the-top creaminess. He bottles very little Rosso every year but what he does make is usually among the ten best examples in Montalcino. Ian D'Agata, Vinous.com

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.

The estate takes its name from a medieval tower dating back to the 13th century where the nuns (that lived in the Madonna delle Grazie convent) stored chestnuts used to make flour for bread. The vineyard lies at 400 meters above sea level, and the soils are an intricate mix of mostly sand large stone of limestone and Galestro.
