2015 Brunello di Montalcino, Il Marroneto


$95.00 per Bottle


12 Bottles




"You just can't beat the purity of the bouquet here: cherries, red licorice, blue flowers and currants. It's all stunning. Il Marroneto's 2015 Brunello di Montalcino opens to a light garnet color with faint ruby highlights. The wine never veers from its lanes, sticking to an absolutely traditional and fresh expression from the appellation. It offers a lean to medium-weight mouthfeel with radiant fruit flavors—think pure cherry fruit. Fruit is harvested from a five-hectare parcel at 300 meters above sea level with calcareous sand and Galestro soils. These conditions lead to the aromatic intensity of the wine, and that's the main takeaway in this classic vintage. There is a moment of softness that expands quickly over the palate. These results are graceful and gorgeous. Some 23,569 bottles were made. This wine was bottled in June 2019, and it hit the market in January 2020." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"There is an inherent sweetness to this red, courtesy of the ripe strawberry and cherry fruit, complemented by mineral, tobacco and wild herb notes, balanced by a backbone of dense, refined tannins. Shows fine balance and length. Best from 2023 through 2040. 1,961 cases made, 583 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Very lively red. Aromas of raspberry, blood orange and herbs. Sneaky concentration and complexity to the very pure flavors of red berries, blood orange and herbs. Tight with firm tannins on the clean, steely finish." Ian D'Agata, Vinous.com

"Tasted blind. Just mid ruby. Sweetly perfumed strawberry and cherry fruit. Elegant, almost ethereal fruit, but growing in stature on the finish and with bags of gorgeous, coating tannins. Long and aromatic, just not piling it very high at the moment, but with a full spread on the finish." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
