97 Pts Wine Enthusiast
"Multifaceted fragrances suggest violet, rose, red berry, baking spice, savory herb and a balsamic note. Elegant with great intensity, the radiant palate delivers juicy wild cherry, crushed berry, cinnamon and a note of star anise alongside a backbone of assertive, fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. Itâs a gorgeous wine with breeding and class that needs time to bloom fully. Drink 2020-2035."
95 Pts Monica Larner - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Beautifully ripe and intense, the 2010 Brunello di Montalcino never feels overdone or too heavy. In fact, it treads with the lightest of footprints imparting delicate tones of rose petal, forest berry, white cherry, balsam herb and sweet almond as it flutters over the senses. The main message here is elegance and this wine is profoundly eloquent on the subject. The mouthfeel is tight silky and enduring. Delicate mineral notes give focus and definition to the finish. This is a classic Brunello from an iconic vintage."
95 Pts Antonio Galloni - Vinous
"Dark red cherries, mint, sage, tobacco, licorice and new leather blossom in Il Marroneto's 2010 Brunello di Montalcino. Savory and lifted in the glass, the 2010 possesses stunning overall balance and tons of nuance. The tannins are firm and incisive, yet also remarkably polished. Ideally, readers should cellar the 2010 for at least a few years, but it is going to be very hard to resist the temptation of drinking the 2010 young."
Want to know why this is one of the most talked about names in Brunello right now?
You will know the minute you taste this wine for the first time. This estate has been on fire of late and this particular vintage earned incredible press (as high as 97 Points) and is without question, one of our very top buys from the 2010 Brunello campaign.
An important note here - If there is one 2010 Brunello you buy heavy on ... this should be the one. Without question, this will go down as one of the wines of the vintage!
For more than 30 years, Alessandro Mori, owner/winemaker for Il Marroneto, has embodied all that is Brunello: passionate, pedigreed and monumental in his professional and personal convictions. Mori's capacity for leveraging the magic of Northern Montalcino's most prestigious sub zone has raised the standard for how critics around the world view this prized wine, many of whom have singled out Alessandro Mori as someone who embodies what has become Brunello's greatest moment.
"This is a classic Brunello from an iconic vintage...This is what the great wines of Montalcino aspire to be, one of the historic estates of Montalcino."
- Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sharing the same magical corner of northern Montalcino with luminaries such as Casanova di Neri, Il Marroneto's history is relatively young, dating back to the late 1970s when Alessandro's father bought prized vineyard property and immediately got to work, releasing their first Il Marroneto Brunello in 1980. Alessandro, then a young man, hastily learned to respect and master his craft under two of Tuscany's greatest masters of the trade: Mario Cortevesio (Il Poggione Brunello) and Giulio Gambelli.
The same morning we interviewed Alessandro Mori for this offer, he had received word of his cover photo on one of Hong Kongâs most highly regarded wine publications, "Wine Times". Add to this the meteoric rise in scores (into the upper 90s) that Il Marroneto has received from all the major U.S. wine critics, and you have the makings of a must-have Italian red for your collection!
Listen to importer Michele Ricci discuss the epic 2010 Brunello vintage.
The 2010 Brunello Vintage is on fire, literally. Every one of our wine collectors, AND every major critic, has been asking for what's available in 2010 Brunello, and today's offer on the 2010 Il Marroneto is the perfect embodiment of this iconic year, and the reviews show it. At 97 points from the Wine Enthusiast, the 2010 Il Marroneto is the highest rated (non single Cru) Brunello di Montacino from the entire vintage, beating out Biondi Santi, Ciacci Piccolomini Pianroosso and Altesino Montosoli! Wow. Antonio Galloni, Monica Larner, the Wine Spectator, all wax poetic on this monumental vintage and on Il Marroneto in particular. There should be zero hesitation from you to buy this. At today's price, this is must-have for the collector and Italian Wine Lover, period.
